March Roars in Like a Lion?


As the poem goes, March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb. The idea being March is when we transition seasonally from winter to spring, just like the calendar would have you believe. As I’ve written elsewhere, I’m not too keen on relying on animals – i.e. groundhogs –  to be meteorologists, and I have about as much confidence in this lion/lamb concept. Please take a second to vote in the poll below.

“In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb”

by Lorie Hill

March roars in like a lion
So fierce,
The wind so cold,
It seems to pierce.

The month rolls on
And Spring draws near,
And March goes out
Like a lamb so dear.

    • Good point. But the last several years have seen Montreal winters go from snowy to less snow but much colder. Global warming? Who knows. I’d prefer a good old fashioned blizzard to biting cold.
