What do you like about March?

by SkinnyDomicile on March 11, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

According to American poet Emily Dickinson (1830-1886):

We like March -- his shoes are Purple.
He is new and high --
Makes he Mud for Dog and Peddler --
Makes he Forests Dry --
Knows the Adder's Tongue his coming
And begets her spot --
Stands the Sun so close and mighty --
That our Minds are hot.
News is he of all the others --
Bold it were to die
With the Blue Birds buccaneering
On his British sky --
