Quotations about all 12 months in general

Janet was quite ill one day.
Febrile troubles came her way.
Martyr-like, she lay in bed;
Aproned nurses softly sped.
Maybe, said the leech judicial,
Junket would be beneficial.
Juleps, too, though freely tried,
Augured ill, for Janet died.
Sepulchre was sadly made;
Octaves pealed and prayers were said.
Novices with many a tear
Decorated Janet's bier.
- - - Author Unknown

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November,
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one;
Excepting leap year,-that 's the time
When February's days are twenty-nine.
- - - Author Unknown

The twelve months...
Snowy, Flowy, Blowy,
Showery, Flowery, Bowery,
Hoppy, Croppy, Droppy,
Breeze, Sneezy, Freezy.
- - - George Ellis

January cold and desolate;
February dripping wet;
March wind ranges;
April changes;
Birds sing in tune
To flowers of May,
And sunny June
Brings longest day;
In scorched July
The storm-clouds fly,
Lightning-torn;
August bears corn,
September fruit;
In rough October
Earth must disrobe her;
Stars fall and shoot
In keen November;
And night is long
And cold is strong
In bleak December.
- - - Christina Giorgina Rossetti "The Months"

January gray is here,
Like a sexton by her grave;
February bears the bier,
March with grief doth howl and rave,
And April weeps-but, O ye hours!
Follow with May's fairest flowers.
- - - Percy Bysshe Shelley "Dirge for the Year"

Quotations About the Month of January

January, month of empty pockets! let us endure this evil month, anxious as a theatrical producer's forehead.
- - - Colette

It is deep January. The sky is hard. The stalks are firmly rooted in ice
- - - Wallace Stevens "No Possum, No Sop, No Taters"

Quotations About the Month of February

February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer.
- - - Shirley Jackson "Raising Demons"

The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February.
- - - Joseph Wood Krutch

Late February days; and now, at last,
Might you have thought that Winter's woe was past;
So fair the sky was and so soft the air.
- - - William Morris

February is a suitable month for dying. Everything around is dead, the trees black and frozen so that the appearance of green shoots two months hence seems preposterous, the ground hard and cold, the snow dirty, the winter hateful, hanging on too long.
- - - Anna Quindlen "One True Thing"

Why, what's the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness?
- - - William Shakespeare "Much Ado About Nothing"

Quotations About the Month of March

The stormy March has come at last,
With winds and clouds and changing skies;
I hear the rushing of the blast
That through the snowy valley flies.
- - - William Cullen Bryant "March"

Our life is March weather, savage and serene in one hour.
- - - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Indoors or out, no one relaxes
In March, that month of wind and taxes,
The wind will presently disappear,
The taxes last us all the year.
- - - Ogden Nash "Thar She Blows"

At the earliest ending of winter,
In March, a scrawny cry from outside
Seemed like a sound in his mind.
He knew that he heard it,
A bird's cry, at daylight or before,
In the early March wind.
- - - Wallace Stevens "Not Ideas about the Thing but the Thing Itself"

Beware the ides of March.
- - - William Shakespeare "Julius Caesar"

Daffodils,
That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty.
- - - William Shakespeare "The Winter's Tale"

Despite March's windy reputation, winter isn't really blown away: it is washed away. It flows down all the hills, goes swirling down the valleys and spills out to sea. Like so many of this earth's elements, winter itself is soluble in water.
- - - Unknown

Quotations About the Month of April

April is a promise that May is bound to keep.
- - - Hal Borland

April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
- - - T. S. Eliot "The Waste Land"

An April Sunday brings the snow
Making the blossom on the plum trees green,
Not white. An hour or two, and it will go.
- - - Philip Larkin "An April Sunday brings the snow"

The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools' Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.
- - - Poor Robin's Almanac (1790)

April is in my mistress' face,
And July in her eyes hath place,
Within her bosom is September,
But in her heart a cold December.
- - - Author Unknown

April, April
Laugh thy girlish laughter
Then the moment after,
Weep thy girlish tears.
- - - Sir William Watson

Quotations About the Month of May

Hard is the heart that loved naught in May.
- - - Geoffrey Chaucer "The Romance of the Rose"

The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.
- - - Sir Thomas Malory" Le Morte d'Arthur" (1485)

Quotations About the Month of June

O, my luve's like a red red rose
That's newly sprung in June:
O my luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.
- - - Robert Burns "My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose"

June is bustin' out all over.
- - - Oscar Hammerstein

What is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days.
- - - James Russell Lowell "The Vision of Sir Launfal"

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast that it invented romance.

It is the month of June,
The month of leaves and roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes,
And pleasant scents the noses.
- - - Nathaniel Parker Willis "The Month of June"

Begin the hours of this day slow.

Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather.

Not yesterday I learned to know
The love of bare November days
Before the coming of the snow....
- - - Robert Frost "My November Guest"

No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,
November!
- - - Thomas Hood

November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear.
- - - Sir Walter Scott "Marmion"

How sad would be November if we had no knowledge of the spring!
- - - Edwin Way Teale

Than we were in September,"
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
