It’s the first day of July,
The first day of the month of Julius.
The rain is pouring, a bully!
The sun is hidden, hideous!
Another two months to go
Before Winter is through its season
Then it will be Spring’s do…
I can’t wait, I can’t reason!
Winter is cold, dark and clammy,
It pulls my nerves so taut
That sometimes, it makes me a dummy,
A dunce who cannot be taught.
Bears have the right idea –
They hibernate all through Winter.
They wake up fresh in Spring, my dear
And live life to the fullest, not bitter!
