We Like March – 11 March 2009
I found this poem by Emily Dickinson in an old book of ours and
thought it would be appropriate for this March day. In line five, the
poet refers to “the adder’s tongue” (also known as dogtooth violet,
fawn lily, or trout lily) which is an early spring wildflower that
grows in our area. For photos and information about adder’s tongue (Erythronium
We Like March
We like March, his shoes are purple,
He is new and high;
Makes he mud for dog and peddler,
Makes he forest dry;
Knows the adder's tongue his coming,
And begets her spot.
Stands the sun so close and mighty
That our minds are hot.
News is he of all the others;
Bold it were to die
With the blue-birds buccaneering
On his British sky.

world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
