Dear Cousin,


To be the shortest month of the year, February seems to drag on the longest. It is sort of an in-between month, trailing along behind winter and yet not looking toward spring. It can be vicious and sneaky, with unexpected snowstorms and biting, cruel winds. Sometimes it drops a mild, sunny day to us, and then follows it with a bitterly cold one dripping with icicles.

St. Patrick's Day,
What does it mean?
Drinking beer,
And wearing green?


Get togethers,
Dinners and such?
Giggles and laughs,
Indulging too much?


Walks of all kinds,
Celebrate it's meaning,
And all we find.


Dancing, singing,
To all our beliefs,
Waving flags,
And clover leafs.


St. Patrick's Day,
What does it mean?
Red, white, and blue,
And wearing green.
