My Febluaries -- a February poem/a blues poem

Gregory K.

I’m gloomy, gray.
Don’t want to play.
My Febluaries are bad today.

Outdoors, inside --
No place to hide:
These blues I’ve got won’t be denied.

I’ll give a cheer
When March is here
And February’s gone this year.

But ‘til that day
I’m sad to say
My Febluaries are here to stay.

The Febluaries get me every year - thank goodness spring follows!

Thanks for sharing this.

coming down with a cold, febluary isn't just a feeling, it's a whole new way to say it with a stuffy node.

nicely, nicely

Great word, great capture.

How perfect! Februaries have always gotten me down,. Now I have a new word to describe it!

Ugh -- I don't know why, but I have the WORST Februaries ever this year. Right on the moan-y, as it were.

Julie said...

Send it in to the OED people - it's perfect!

Mary Lee said...

It only takes a day or two of sun to send the Febluaries packing, though! Wishing clear skies ahead for all of you with the blues!

Greg Pincus said...

Oh, look at you Mary, with all your sweetness and light. Take that elsewhere!!!! :-)

Thanks, y'all, for the comments. It's raining here in L.A., and I have run out of dark chocolate. It was a good day to post!

You are such a clever lad.

I'm not sure how I missed your poem, but happened upon it today and just had say, in words much shorter than my introduction - TRUE DAT!

I LOVE this, as always. I'm printing this to go up on my door.

i FEEL it, man. Yeah. Yeah.

Dark chocolate is the only defense I know. It doesn't bring light. It's more of a shield.
