March
 
  March. Its tree, Juniper. Its stone, Bloodstone. Its motto, “Courage and strength in times of danger.”
        Old Saying.
  1
        Ah, March! we know thou art
Kind-hearted, spite of ugly looks and threats,
And, out of sight, art nursing April’s violets!
        Helen Hunt Jackson—Verses. March.
  2
Slayer of the winter, art thou here again?
  O welcome, thou that bring’st the summer nigh!
The bitter wind makes not the victory vain,
  Nor will we mock thee for thy faint blue sky.
        William Morris—March. St. 1.
  3
The ides of March are come.
        Julius Cæsar. Act III. Sc. 1. L. 1.
  4
In fierce March weather
White waves break tether,
And whirled together
  At either hand,
Like weeds uplifted,
The tree-trunks rifted
In spars are drifted,
  Like foam or sand.
        Swinburne—Four Songs of Four Seasons. St. 11.
  5
With rushing winds and gloomy skies
The dark and stubborn Winter dies:
Far-off, unseen, Spring faintly cries,
Bidding her earliest child arise;
            March!
        Bayard Taylor—March.
  6
All in the wild March-morning I heard the angels call;
It was when the moon was setting, and the dark was over all;
The trees began to whisper, and the wind began to roll,
And in the wild March-morning I heard them call my soul.
        Tennyson—The May Queen. Conclusion.
  7
Up from the sea, the wild north wind is blowing
  Under the sky’s gray arch;
Smiling I watch the shaken elm boughs, knowing
  It is the wind of March.
        Whittier—March.
  8
  Like an army defeated
  The snow hath retreated,
  And now doth fare ill
  On the top of the bare hill;
The Ploughboy is whooping—anon—anon!
  There’s joy in the mountains:
  There’s life in the fountains;
  Small clouds are sailing,
  Blue sky prevailing;
The rain is over and gone.
        WordsworthWritten in March.
