February

February

From

Februum, latin

For purification

The shortest month

Brigid´s day or Imbolc

Sea grass rushes

Candlemass, throats blessed

The onset of spring

St. Valentine´s

Lovers’ remembrance

Heart cuttings

Tokens of attachment

Four weeks

Dipped in snow and sky fall

Rain, hail, drizzle

Storms from the west

Flooding lands, homes

Snow drops, crocuses

Hailing spring, us

Withstanding disaster

Under the weather
