To March, in Sympathy

Just one lion

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It comes in like a lion, they say,
this third month of ours:
all teeth and claws,
roaring, snarling, raging.
Dragged into being two days premature,
is it any wonder?

There are those who pity February,
that cold post-shortened month–
but I beg you,
give some thought to March.
