We Like March


In We Like March, Dickinson personifies the month and the new season. It offers a range of energies and is playful, but what do those purple shoes symbolize?
We Like March
Would you recognize March if you saw him?
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.
