February Poem

One month is past another is begun
Since merry bells ran out the dying year
And buds of rarest green began to peer
As if impatient for a warmer sun
And though the distant hills are bleak and dun
The virgin snowdrop like a lambent fire
Pierces the cold earth with its green streaked spire
And in dark woods the wandering little one
May find a primrose.

Hartley Coleridge 1842
