Why Summer’s a popular season,
Why Spring has its voters
And Fall its promoters,
Yet longing for Winter is treason.

Winter of our discontent’. ‘Nuclear winter’. ‘My corpse’s wintry mien’. To go on would risk wearying the good-hearted, and alienating cultivated opinion. Or would it? Our thoughts echo unwittingly with such discriminatory language. How long, people, until a Winter Awakening? We have much to learn from decent folk South of the Equator, where such biased talk is seldom heard. Come on, Northern Hemisphere! If it wasn’t for Winter, FFS, I wouldn’t have been born at all! And I bet I’m not the only one.
