Mood swings of March.
Sunshine and flowers one day.
Leaden clouds and snow the next.
Burst of optimism that settled chairs on the deck
squelched by a cover of heavy, wet snow.
March weather, however dreadful,
viewed as a temporary aberration.
Its grasp tenuous at best.
Days are longer; sun is stronger.
In spite of obstacles in her path,
Spring is about to cross the finish line.
