The Twelve Months

IN January falls the snow; 

In February, cold winds blow; 

In March, peep out the early flowers; 

In April, come the sunny showers; 

In May, the roses bloom so gay; 

In June, the farmer mows his hay; 

In July, brightly shines the sun; 

In August, harvest is begun; 

September turns the green leaves brown; 

October winds then shake them down; 

November fields are bleak and sere, 

December comes, and ends the year.
