January Brings The Snow

Song Video

Lyrics

January brings the snow that,
Makes our feet and fingers glow.
February brings the rain that,
Thaws the frozen lake again.
March brings breezes sharp and shrill that,
Shake the dancing daffodil.

April brings the primrose sweet and,
Scatters daisies at our feet.

May brings flocks of pretty lambs,
Skipping by their fleecy dams.

June brings tulips, lilies, roses that,
Fill the children's hands with posies.
Hot July brings cooling showers,
Apricots and gillyflowers.
August brings the sheaves of corn and
Then the harvest home is borne.
Warm September brings the fruit.
Sportsmen then begin to shoot.

Brown October brings the pheasant.
Then to gather nuts is pleasant.
Dull November brings the blast.
Then the leaves go whirling past.

Chill December brings the sleet,
Blazing fire and Christmas treat.

When I was five years old I was evacuated from London to Bedfordshire because of the war. I don't know where I got it, but there I had a handkerchief on each corner of which was the first, second, third and fourth line of this poem. I learned it off by heart; the hankie must have been one of a set and I always regretted not owning the three more hankies so that I could learn the rest of the poem . Today it came up in conversation about the advent of spring. So I looked it up! Delightful!

My mother, now 87, suddenly started to recite this to me last week. She remembers it from her childhood and learning it in school. So here I am just putting in the two lines she could remember. What a treasure, now I will be able to copy up the full version for her. Wonderful.

I learned this poem from the inside cover of a story book that I got one Christmas in the 1950's when I was about 6 years old. I told my children about it but I could only remember the first few lines but today I tapped in January brings the snow and was amazed when it came up! Now I can learn my children Justine, Stephen & Harry and grandchildren Bailey, Henry, Lily & Lucy the poem. thank you!

I learned this song at school and still sing it to myself and taught my kids it but they seem to have forgotten it. Kids at school should learn it too it is a lovely song and teaches you of what to expect in the months.

My mother who is 92 was reciting this to me today but could not remember the lines after June onwards. Now I have found it on this website I shall be able to remind her of a poem she learned as a child many years ago. Thank-you.

I was taught this poem at school in the late 1940s. And I can remember every word today. Wouldn't it be nice if children today could grow up learning these beautiful things about our beautiful life and country.
