Sweet Ember

Sweet Ember

January ends my holidays
My dreams to sleep, eat and play
How could february be so dreary
To harbor the fall of global economy
So fleetingly, came march
With the brief excitement of a flickering match
Oh, what a silly tease April is
So much pranks and funny tricks
How soon may glided by
With stormy nights and cloudy skies
Everyone said “Thank God for June”
World economies finally have a boon
July and august came in twin
Finally, i became a teen
Swiftly ,the ember is here
To a new year, the torch it bears
How i love you sweet December
Every day of you, i remember
All the parties, pomp and treats
Endless foods, gifts and sweets
When you leave ,this i pray
That very soon, you come again.

  1. I also love December. To me, it symbolises a door – an end to one room, an entrance to another.

    It’s such a cute poem Paul. By the way, did you intentionally not capitalize the ‘i’s?

  7. @Tee.thanks bro
    just felt the ‘ i ‘ should not be capitalised as it will be close to meaning just a single person when the poem itself can be related to by everyone.

  8. hehehe, great.
    Nice going, Paul!

  9. Ah ah, this is so unfair. You didn’t even acknowledge SEPT, OCT & most of all my NOV. Yet this poem bears their common last name. I go sue you & Dec to court o! *winks* Nice poem bro!
