January Life Events

800px-January-scene-skating-early-1820s

An ice-skating scene, as seen in a print titled “January”, one of an early 1820’s series of prints of the months.

January

The days are short,
The sun a spark,
Hung thin between
The dark and dark.

Fat snowy footsteps
Track the floor.
Milk bottles burst
Outside the door.

The river is
A frozen place
Held still beneath
The trees of lace.

The sky is low.
The wind is gray.
The radiator
Purrs all day.

— John Updike
