THE MONTHS


ဒီကဗျာလေးတွေကို သေသေချာချာ ကျက်မှတ်ထားမယ်ဆိုရင် အနည်းဆုံး (၅)မှတ်ကနေ (၇)မှတ်အထိ သေချာတာကြောင့် ဒီနှစ်မှ တက္ကသိုလ်ဝင်တန်းတက်မယ့်မောင်ငယ်ညီမငယ်လေးများသာမက၊ အင်္ဂလိပ်စာလေ့လာလိုသူများအတွက်ပါ အကျိုးရှိစေမယ်လို့ ယုံကြည်ပါတယ်။

 

THE MONTHS

January cold 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 Rossetti]
