She makes firm promises anew
against bitter storms that blew.
She’s my sanctuary
and she’s mine again in blazing fire
while winds outside howl in ire,
my love, January.
She’s bitter and cold at heart
and demanding from the start,
a turbulent estuary
toiling through a spiteful blast
Her passion is short and fast,
She’s the promise of spring
and all the joy it will bring,
my youthful inarch
grafting renewed life from soil,
while kissing away winter’s spoil,
my maiden, March.
She’s full of generous grace
that blooms on her young face.
She’s my staple.
She clouds with sudden rain
but washes away winter’s pain.
My sweet April.
She warms to the growing year
and whispers sweetly in my ear,
“Let’s make hay!”
as she lies surrounded in blossom
pressing me languidly to her bosom.
My darling bud, May.
She’s bright in a summer sky
And sees with her stifling eye
My heated swoon.
she is a sweet vision of a dream
serving strawberries and cream.
My honey, June.
She is passion and sweat
conveyed on her flaming heat.
I’m seduced by
her touch on cool satin white
lying naked on a sultry night.
My lover, June.
She is grace personified
and longing dignified
O, empress of lust.
Her ardent light grows ever few
towards old sorrow and yellow hue,
yet she’s August.
She’s blessed with eastern flame
that sets summer to shame.
My Indian ember
offers sweet and spice, and lament,
avidity quenched, an end well meant.
O, dear September!
She is hushed by colder grieving sighs
as yellow-red drops from ashen skies.
My heroine sober,
her breath cuts through our lover’s dance
tearing us asunder before winter’s advance.
Yet I love you October.
She’s stern of face, and steel of grace
raising tumult over dampened waste.
Her fires remember
and burn away my vanity with iced water
after witches’ night. She’s October’s daughter,
my princess, November.
She is big of heart and twice as dark
with warmth inside while out is stark.
Her full red member
comes but once on her frozen tear
but she glows to bring me cheer.
My everlasting December.
