Let’s celebrate the month of February with quotes and poems.
The second month of the year being the shortest month of the twelve, isn’t the only interesting fact about it. February is best known for Valentine’s Day that we celebrate on the 14th. February is also the last month of winter with little hinting of spring coming soon.
It is also the only month having a changing number of days in it – the length goes from 28 to 29 days every four years, during the leap year. That makes it the only month having less than 30 days.
Fun fact: Only three times in history February has had 30 days of length.
Did you know that February is the only month that can pass without a single full moon? It’s obvious, if you think about it, but who would think about it, right?

Poems about February
Little month of February,
You are small, but worthy—very!
Will you grow up like the others,
Like your sister months and brothers?
Every four years with a bound
With a leap up from the ground,
Trying to grow tall as they—
All you stretch is one small day!
Even then you’re not so tall
But just the shortest month of all.
(Leap Year – Annette Wynne)
When February birds do mate,
You wed nor dread your fate . . .
Married in February’s sleepy weather,
Life you’ll tread in time together.”
(New Zealand Proverb)
Though Winter still asserts his right to reign,
He sways his sceptre now with gentler hand;
Nay, sometimes softens to a zephyr bland
The hurrying blast, which erst along the plain
Drove the skin-piercing sleet and pelting rain
In headlong rage; while, ever and anon,
He draws aside his veil of vapours dun,
That the bright sun may smile on us again.
To-day ‘twould seem (so soft the west wind’s sigh)
That the mild spirit of the infant Spring
Was brooding o’er the spots where hidden lie
Such early flowers as are the first to fling
On earth’s green lap their wreaths of various dye—
Flowers, round whose forms sweet hopes and sweeter memories cling.
(February – Rebecca Hey)
biting chills, and
white snow fluffed hills
Valentines day, oh how gay!
presidents’ day is coming our way.
February, sweet and small, greatest month of all.”
(28 Word Poem for February – Eric Lies)
I thought the world was cold in death;
The flowers, the birds, all life was gone,
For January’s bitter breath
Had slain the bloom and hushed the song.
And still the earth is cold and white,
And mead and forest yet are bare;
But there’s a something in the light
That says the germ of life is there.
(February – Jane Austin)
Wan February with weeping cheer,
Whose cold hand guides the youngling year
Down misty roads of mire and rime,
Before thy pale and fitful face
The shrill wind shifts the clouds apace
Through skies the morning scarce may climb.
Thine eyes are thick with heavy tears,
But lit with hopes that light the year’s.”
(A Year’s Carols: February – Algernon Charles Swinburne)
