Foursight: What's the cruelest month

2014-04-04T00:30:00Z Foursight: What's the cruelest month The Billings Gazette

T.S. Elliot wrote “April is the cruelest month” as part of his 1922 poem, “The Waste Land.” He wrote: April is the cruellest month, breeding/ Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing/ Memory and desire, stirring/ Dull roots with spring rain.

We asked our Facebook friends what month they believe is the cruelest. To join in the conversation, go to www.facebook.com/billingsgazetteenjoy.

Connie Dillon: “February ... the longest shortest month. And the month my dad passed away. Glad it is done.”

Blaine Jensen: “February, of course. It is the extension of winter’s heart ... the Hunger Moon.”

Sharli Kiner Ziebarth: “November. Month of death.”

Maggie Sparboe: “January, because winter will continue for months!!! April is my favorite! April showers bring Maggie’s flowers! I do have tulips coming. Means warmer weather is around the bend.”
