Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: January // (Ed. Note: Janus was the two-faced Roman god of gates and doors who looked both ways and, // accordingly, became the god of beginnings and endings; marriages, births, deaths, and other significant // occasions were particularly sacred to him. -Nelson) // JANUS am I; oldest of potentates; // Forward I look, and backward, and below // I count, as god of avenues and gates, // The years that through my portals come and go. // I block the roads, and drift the fields with snow; // I chase the wild-fowl from the frozen fen; // My frosts congeal the rivers in their flow, // My fires light up the hearths and hearts of men.
