Bloody March

by cricketjeff on March 23, 2010.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

In January and February the snow lies on the ground
Your icy toes each morning are in pain
while hoar frosts in the moonlight spread their beauty all around
But every day in March it seems to rain

In April spring is blooming cherry blossom everywhere
And May let’s Mother Nature take the strain
Then June means watching cricket scents of roses in the air
But every day in March it seems to rain

July arrives in splendour August follows up with more
September sees the gold of bursting grain
October ends the harvests crunching leaves on forest floor
But every day in March it seems to rain

November can be moody and December’s often worse
But Christmas seems to promise us a gain
There isn’t any doubting just one Month must bear a curse
since every day in March it seems to rain
