twelfth night

Twelfth Night
the rest
is winter

Consider this the mood piece of a retired English teacher.

Ahhh ! Brillant ! Shakespeare and the twelfth night (of the time between Christmas and the Feast of the three Kings...)

( There is a similar tradition in French, called Les douze petits mois.)

Being interested in "intertextuality", I really love your haiku. Let's hope that the wintery rest won't be too harsh...

Of course, winter isn't what it used to be. at least, we've had a series of springlike days in January. see "thaw," posted today.
