The February sunshine steeps your boughs and tints the buds and swells the leaves within.
William C. Bryant
Writing 'February' made me realize that breaking form is a way of letting the song be human.
February, a form
Pale-vestured, wildly fair,—
One of the North Wind's daughters,
With icicles in her hair.
“Even though February was the shortest month of the year, sometimes it seemed like the longest.”
― J.D. Robb
“February, when the days of winter seem endless and no amount of wistful recollecting can bring back any air of summer.” Shirley Jackson quotes
