March, baby, we need to talk.
That lion-and-lamb stuff is an understatement when it comes to you. Good heavens to Murgatroyd, did you ever march forth.
The good, the bad and the exquisite all got hashed together in a corned beef rainbow of crocuses and cats. You didn’t follow rules, March. You wouldn’t coddle anyone’s calendar.
But you were a wonder we’ll never forget. And so, we’ll love you with all our Lucky Charms, for all of our days.
And in case you’ve forgotten what marvels you marched into our midst, well, let me spark your memory:

Yes, March, you’ll linger on longer than the average month. And, together, we’ll march forth, to peace and poetry and promises of love.
That best-is-yet-to-come stuff is no understatement.
