December Goodbye: A Daina*
One year’s now down to one chilled month
with crisp wind as cold as my heart
brought by your December goodbye.
A clean slate named change, I will try.

Today I challenge you to write a poem in which you explore what you think is the cruelest month, and why.
The Daina is:
- a single quatrain.
- metered, dactylic or trochaic tetrameter. All lines usually end on unstressed syllables.
- unrhymed though alliteration and rhyme can naturally appear.
