NPM: A Song of the Weather

January brings the snow,
Makes your feet and fingers glow
February's ice and sleet
Freeze the toes right off your feet
Welcome March with wintry wind
Would thou wert not so unkind
April brings the sweet spring showers
On and on for hours and hours
Farmers fear unkindly May
Frost by night and hail by day
June just rains and never stops
Thirty days and spoils the crops
In July the sun is hot
Is it shining? No, it's not.
August cold and dank and wet
Brings more rain than any yet
Bleak September's mists and mud
Is enough to chill the blood
Then October adds a gale -
Wind and slush and rain and hail.
Dark November brings the fog
Should not do it to a dog.
Freezing wet December then
Bloody January again!

-- Flanders and Swann
