February
 
          Come when the rains
Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice,
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light. Approach!
The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps
And the broad arching portals of the grove
Welcome thy entering.
        Bryant—A Winter Piece. L. 60.

And tints the buds and swells the leaves within.

February makes a bridge, and
March breaks it.

February, fill the dyke
With what thou dost like.
