LibriVox volunteers bring you 11 recordings of The Twelve Months by George Ellis (1753-1815). This was the Weekly Poetry project for January 24th – January 31st, 2010.
George Ellis, a Jamacian land owner, was a friend of Sir Walter Scott. It is possible that via Scott he was the inspiration for Emily Brontë’s choice of the nom de plume Ellis Bell.
The Twelve Months
Snowy, Flowy, Blowy,
Showery, Flowery, Bowery,
Hoppy, Croppy, Droppy,
Breezy, Sneezy, Freezy.
