The Legacy of March

Lion, Lamb
March of many weathers enters

Like a Lion’s loud roar

Shaking the barren tree limbs

From their sleepy core
Awakening season’s centers

To life once more

Then the Lion sleeps, time dims

March shuts Winter’s door
With Daffodil’s as assenters

And Songbirds galore

March leads a chorus of hymns

Life to restore
As Springtime rain mentors

March exits, no encore.

Like a frisky Lamb she skims

Toward the exit door
