A line repeat from the stanza above

Climate Change

Winter is now a sometime thing
As climate changes so does season
From rain to sun for no good reason
Then sun to fog to cold's crackling ring

As climate changes so does season
Predictability is out the window
Will we hear thunder within blowing snow
See daffodils in February's transition

Predictably is out the window
Staid old winter is a Harlequin
Checkered now in warm and rime
No more the dormant frigid glow

Staid old winter is a harlequin
Old memories found in A Christmas Carol
That warmed our thoughts as Yule logs roil
Dickens' Christmas Past a lost paladin

The repetition does make the poem interesting. Also, the rhymes/quatrain form work well. And love the reference of Dicken's "A Christmas Carol."

I like this modified pantoum immensely, and the rhyme (which is subtle in spots, but present) does add to the poem. A joy to read lines like "Staid old Winter is a harlequin" and "daffodils in February's transition."
