January thaw is deceptive.
The sun shines brightly;
Yet there’s a chill
That serves to remind me
It’s winter still.

January thaw wants to trick us
So we’ll come outside
To work and play;
Forgetting wintertide
Still has its way.

January thaw is here briefly;
Frost strengthens its hold,
Till everything
Is enveloped in cold,
Longing for spring.

January thaw renews our hope;
True warm weather comes,
Cold melts away;
People, creatures, blossoms
Greet the new day.
