The Days are ClearChristinaGeorgina 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.
