January

And what does January hold?
Clean account books,
Bare diaries,
Three hundred and sixty-five new days,
neatly parceled into weeks, months and seasons.
A chunk of time, of life ...
those first notes like an orchestra tuning up
before the play begins.

~ Phyllis Nicholson
Country Bouquet (1947)
