February out, March in
Winds this month are often strong
Hearing it rattle against the garbage bin
Making winter seem so very long.
It is said March comes in like a lion
Thirty-one days to make some changes
Choose them singularly and show your tryin’
Lots can happen if one takes it in stages.
Hamlet was warned to beware the ides
Continuing Shakespeare’s poem with a riddle
Perhaps watching the ocean and its tides
Enjoying the March days from this middle.
St. Patrick Day arrived with the color green
Shamrocks are placed almost everywhere
Went to a parade that was the best ever seen
Singing and dancing was the main theme here.
Winter solstice happens every year
Grass turns green and flowers bloom
Wipe away each and every tear
Spring has much less gloom and doom.
Next month is around the bend
Hiding in the bushes away from the cam
March is about to come to an end
As usual going out like a lamb.
