"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    I am a kind of person who will jump at any choice to rise in life and you've no right to jump on me this.

    Joke! :lol:

    I can't simply jump at your offer because, I will have to consult other board members first. So that, they can't jump on me later in case of any bad decision. :)

    When my neighbour showed me his new trampoline, I jumped at the chance to jump on it immediately.

    I jumped at the chance to take the day off, but all the forum members jumped on me for being lazy.

    If you don't do your homework, your teacher will jumo on you for being lazy. If I were you, I'd jump at the chance to learn and benefit from an excellent teacher.
