This year, the first day of winter, or the Winter Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere will be December 21. On this day, because of the earth’s tilt, the Northern Hemisphere will be leaning farther away from the sun than at any other time during the year, and it will be the shortest day of the year.
Winter lasts from the winter solstice to the vernal equinox in March.
Following, is a poem about winter, by Arimoko Konshei
Winter is cold
Winter is brittle
Winter is dark
Winter is long
Winter is here
Winter is gone
How is that possible?
It seems so far away in the Summer
It seems so close in autumn
It is winter
Poems are fun and fun learning is forever learning!
