First VI

by Jem Croucher

6 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months III’ series

I leap this year with twenty-nine
for I’m unique like that
the only month to get the chance
for more days, that’s a fact
For I am February, that’s the truth
the second of the year
and also last of winter
in the Northern Hemisphere

My birth flowers are the violet
Primrose and Iris too
with amethyst as my birthstone
which I’m pretty sure you knew
So here’s to first of February
twenty twenty marches on
leaping to the one in four
with this phenomenon
