"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

One person's joke might be another's insult, so try to keep it SFW and FF please, but also understand that some people find things funny that you might not. So, keep it fluffy or Laika will rip it up and throw it round the garden.
