A Seasonal Sonnet

A January cloak rests on the town
And frosty jewels tip the maple trees
By April white-gray yields to mucky brown
May blossoms struggle through the final freeze

June’s a-buzz with annual migration
But the end of August we are tired
People come and stay for their vacation
September finally brings the peace desired

October brings volcanic eruption
By far it is my favorite time of year
Crisp and red, a colorful interruption,
Fortification for the coming drear

Then whiteness blankets everywhere I go
And winter’s cloak wraps me in its snow
