Beware the Ides of March

In honor of that famous line penned by William Shakespeare in his play, Julius Caesar.. and to commemorate this season of basketball madness.. I thought I might share a few quotes:
With rushing winds and gloomy skies The dark and stubborn Winter dies: Far-off, unseen, Spring faintly cries, Bidding her earliest child arise; March! -Bayard Taylor

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. -William Wordsworth

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. -Lord Alfred Tennyson
I am a big fan of March because it signifies the end of snowy winter and the prelude to mild spring here in Kansas.. and of course our Kansas Jayhawks are seeded number one

What is March like where you live? What do you think of when you ponder the month?


  1. Here in South Carolina, March means weather that is definitely getting warmer, with the occasional chilly day. The bulbs are coming up, and the grass is beginning to green up and grow.

    When I think of this month, I think of college basketball. I thoroughly enjoy watching the NCAA tournament, especially the upsets.

  2. I like the upsets too.. unless they involve the #1 seed :)

  3. Hi Bob! Now why would I want to beware these guys? LOL!

    Have a GREAT day!
