Mercurial March

 

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.

About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
