  • March. Its tree, Juniper. Its stone, Bloodstone. Its motto, "Courage and strength in times of danger."
    • Old Saying.
  • Ah, March! we know thou art
    Kind-hearted, spite of ugly looks and threats,
    And, out of sight, art nursing April's violets!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • With rushing winds and gloomy skies
    The dark and stubborn Winter dies:
    Far-off, unseen, Spring faintly cries,
    Bidding her earliest child arise;
    March!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
