September In My Hometown


Welcome, September,
ninth month of the year,
end of the lean season,
season of the monsoon.

The first month with 'ber, '
cold weather's harbinger,
though fickle is the season
and may yet bring a typhoon.

Your advent is welcomed well,
greeted with an early noel,
for lurking just in the corner
is, again, happy December.

Blame us not for starting early
preparing for Christ's nativity,
for our dear little country
is a cradle of Christianity.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
