April Fools comes...

then it goes...

while the springtime flowers grow

Sunny days

Cold, cold nights

 April has 

its Spring delights...


and summer planning

Umbrella time....

and time for planting!



Some chocolates, a teddy bear

a card... or roses, red...

help to say 

how much you're loved

upon this special day...

though winter winds

may blow away...

and clouds drift in the sky

A pretty little valentine

will make the day just right

Hearts and flowers,

chocolates, too...

Valentine's Day

says "I love you!"

Kisses, hugs

and sweet romance

February is

life's Valentine Dance.


January, January,

winter's here to stay

you're nearly almost over

February's on its way

We don't mind that old north wind

the ice, the falling snow

we know that spring will come someday...

the sunshine tells us so...

A clean slate, a fresh start...

call it what you may

It's a new beginning

that's starting

here on New Year's Day

A brand new year...

A canvas 

for the story of your life

Make it everything you want...

and may it be free from strife



Ring in the New Year...

Ring out the old...

May this be the best year

when the story's told...


New Year's Eve is on its way...

Resolutions, come what may...
