The Days are Clear Christina   Georgina Rossetti  The days are clear,  Day after day,  When April's here,  That leads to May,  And June  Must follow soon:  Stay, June, stay!  If only we could stop the moon  And June!  Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894) was a British poet and lyricist.  *****


Yosemite in Winter January by  John Updike The days are short The sun a spark Hung thin between The dark and dark Fat snowy footsteps Track the floor Milk bottles burst Outside the door The river is A frozen place Held still beneath The trees of lace The sky is low The wind is gray The radiator Purrs all day. *   *   * Image by  TravelswithCharie
