Because 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?' is so cliche.

Oh, shall I compare thee to Winter?
When snow falls with nary a sigh
When nature does slumber serenely
Its innocence noticed thereby

For spring time is gaudy and garish
And summer is banal and trite
Deadened leaves rain down in autumn
While winter is perfect and bright

And no one appreciates winter
Because, at times, it can be cold
Despite is capricious demeanor
It holds many wonders untold
