March winds arrive with blustery sunshine chill
marching through forests, over hill and dale.
Through plains lands, swamplands, farmlands and cities,
o'er countryside filled with dogs and kitties,
she makes her presence known as birds chirp songs
heralding springtime's parading entrance:
bright yellow greens in variegating dance
with blazing white dazzle in royal throngs.
Colors of the rainbow fill ground and tree
as yards, orchards, forests call to the bee --
whilst a jubilant melody exudes
from the wren, robin and goldfinch etudes.
Home garden plantings, wheat land plantings too,
fill a hustling, bustling nonchalant hue
with lists of tasks and fun yet left to do!
October October brings cooler days and colder nights blanketed with red and yellow, crimson and orange — color sights to deck the hills, welcome bellows whence we fan the flame on cold nights. Bonfires and hayrides, fun for all, caramel apples and smores bites fill tummies midst those dunking calls. Bobbing for apples, ghoulish frights are all part of October fare; fall festivals and frightful dights round out the Trick or Treat scare. Then as the month comes to a close we pull out our warm winter clothes, wear a scarf to cover our nose.
