It’s amazing to me to see so much green in everyone else’s submissions!!!
Here is my submission.
“March – Still Winter”
by Evelyn with some help from William
“Still winter” we call it up here in Quebec;
Yes, March is still winter with plenty of snow.
I put on my boots and my hat and my mitts,
And put on my snowshoes, with camera in tow.
I open the door and see snow flying ‘round,
Then outside I go with one phrase in my mind,
“I must find a subject that tells me of March.”
But other than snowflakes, what else can I find?
Then flittery-flutter, he catches my eye:
A chickadee lands with a whir and a whiz.
An emblem of March, on a snowy brown limb;
Astride on a larch twig, how cheerful he is!
