january longing

pretty daffodils by my fireplace

pretty daffodils by my fireplace last Spring

I long for you, bright daffodils
During this bleak month of January
Seems ages yet, before those fields
Are filled with yellow, looking pretty

 Grateful I am, for the warmth and light
Despite the dark and cold reality
So I shan’t despair, I shall find delight
By remembering you, my spring beauty

(by Hibiscus Rosa Noor)

Something to match my January blues! 😉
