March~

As said, I now give you... March! Unfortunately, I forgot to do this at the beginning of the month, but it shall be done. Now, to look a little March trivia:

~~~
  • March begins with the sun in the sign of Pisces and ends in the sign of Aries.
  • International Women's Day occurs March 8.
  • March begins on the same day of the week as February, excepting leap years, and as November every year.
  • There is an adage that March "comes in like a lion, but goes out like a lamb", referring to the weather that some regions experience during the month. This saying is meant to demonstrate the unpredictable weather which often occurs as the seasons change.
  • March's birth flower is the jonquil.
  • In ancient Rome, March was called Martius, so named after Mars, the Roman god of war.
~~~~~~~

...And now, the couplet:

~~~

Marchlam

March in like a lion, March out like a lamb;
March starts with a fish and ends with a ram.

~~~~~~~

That took all of two/three minutes ~_^ Hope you paid attention to the jazz above~ Anyhow, Spring Break's next week, so expect some more elaborate entries and a couple new poems; take care 'til next,

All of three minutes? You time-consuming genius. ^_~ I like these periodical entries. Will you continue them through the end of the year (seeing as you've already done months August/September-December)? Or will you just choose new facts to post? ^.^ I'm getting ahead of myself!

Not sure~ I may do posts at the beginning of the month that link the post from a year ago and then feature another poem; that might be appropriate.

Cool couplet there, but not as good as the earlier ones. :) Thanks for the trivia, keep it coming ^^.

You're right, this couplet's not quite as clever; pretty mundane now that I look about it. Maybe I'll do a replacement... next March ~_^
