March

sunshine streams
and beams
the windows warm
and snow seems invisible
impossible
from the high view
of March
all that was dim
that closed us in
is wind away
and promise is credible
spring undeniable
zest
the best
onward

James Mayhew Spring March Hares

Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going forth is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth. – Hosea 6:3

There is, of course, this difference, that in the natural spring the crocus cannot choose whether it will respond or not. We can. We have the power either of withstanding the spring, and sinking back into the cosmic winter, or of going on into those ‘high mid-summer pomps’ in which Our Leader, the Son of man, already dwells, and to which He is calling us. It remains with us to follow or not, to die in this winter, or to go on into that spring and that summer. – C.S Lewis, God in the Dock
