Februarys Elliot Gosselin, '23 Februarys are brutally repetitive. Wake up in the dark, Stay inside while it’s light, Go to sleep when it's dark again. The cold wind will whisper To you, curses and hisses On the tip of its icy tongue, Its chill nipping at your heels. The sky will become a canvas Of ever-rolling gray, The sun shut up and away By a dense blanket of clouds Hugging the once-blue sky. Februarys are cold and dim, even The thickest blankets can be Pierced by the all-encompassing Chill of winter. The sun hides its face from View, perhaps because the clouds Give it some kind of company Up in that lonely sky. So tomorrow I will wake up In the dark The wind nipping at my heels The sun hidden from view And I will go on to live this repetitive February day.
