• Ah, passing few are they who speak,
    Wild, stormy month! in praise of thee;
    Yet though thy winds are loud and bleak,
    Thou art a welcome month to me.
    For thou, to northern lands, again
    The glad and glorious sun dost bring,
    And thou hast joined the gentle train
    And wear'st the gentle name of Spring.

    William Cullen Bryant, “March”
