Well, I like the changes of seasons too. But sometimes enough is enough. A winter break to someplace warm about this time of year is always welcome, but unfortunately not in the cards this winter.

Interesting thought provoking thread, I can see both sides a bit, I do like some seasonal changes, just can do without the January-March 16 (17th is special) weather window up here on Long Island.

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall #3

One more just for fun?

The seasons have spaces between them. In these in-between times, the days can not make up their minds. Yet, you can sense these transitions coming with the changes the length of daylight, the elevation of the sun, the temperature of day and night, and the strength and direction of the winds. Animals and birds know it well, and begin their preparations. So do we.

Ancient Music -- Ezra Pound



Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm.
Raineth drop and staineth slop,
And how the wind doth ramm!
Sing: Goddamm.

Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Freezeth river, turneth liver,
Damn you, sing: Goddamm.

Goddamm, Goddamm, 'tis why I am, Goddamm,
So 'gainst the winter's balm.

Sing goddamm, damm, sing Goddamm.
Sing goddamm, sing goddamm, DAMM.

Thanks. I'd forgotten that. A modern take on Middle English lyrics.

You just raised the intellectual level of TF postings to a new high (although it doesn't take much to do so).

At this time of year I also like the promise of warmth contained in the "original".

Sumer is i-cumin in
By Anonymous

Sing, cuccu, nu. Sing, cuccu.
Sing, cuccu. Sing, cuccu, nu.

Sumer is i-cumin in—
Lhude sing, cuccu!
Groweth sed and bloweth med
And springth the wude nu.
Sing, cuccu!

Awe bleteth after lomb,
Lhouth after calve cu,
Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth—
Murie sing, cuccu!
Cuccu, cuccu,
Wel singes thu, cuccu.
Ne swik thu naver nu!
