#2109569 by Chris Breva AKA Marvin Schrebe


It is now new years once again
It is a time of fresh new starts
Soon our best efforts lay in parts
We are stuck with the winter rain
Some may have lots of aches and pain
Children are bundled up in carts
The shelves are empty in the marts
The only street they plow is Main
Snow piles up against every car
Children make money on this day
You could not budge with a crowbar
You know you will be warm in May
Winter is not my favorite time
I often just say words sublime.


Italian sonnet 14 lines

rhyme scheme abbaabbacdcdee (I'm not the best at iambic meter but there's eight syllables per line in Petrarchan tradition.
