The March sun limps out,A Queen bees first brave shout,
A squirrel stirs from its Winters redoubt,
A gregarious rook barges his fellow lout.
Sap stirs up,from deep on down,
A hare bounces up,a hesistant first leap,
Snowdrops and crocus fall back into sleep,Dandelions bounce suddenly and make strong men weep.
Kites peer down with joy at Birthdays,
Woodpeckers manfully punch in a sexual blaze,
Manmade creatures try their first graze,
A butterflies chrysalis begins to craze.
Spring picks up her skirts and demands Rebirth
Woodlands groan quietly and slowly regirth
Chickweed and speedwell burst out with huge mirth,
A man stamps gently and quits his Winter hearth.
