Mad as a March hare.

Who hasn’t been at one time or another?

Hares mate in March.

And behave rather madly.

Boxing with each other.

Jumping straight up in the air for no reason.

If it doesn’t rain soon, we might do the same.

It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world.

And it’s mad March time.

Even the clocks sprang forward.

Automatically.

That’s enough to drive one mad.

March is a funny month.

Funny odd.

A wee bit confused.

And confusing.

It’s like March has a boxing match with itself.

Turn on the A/C.

Turn on the heat.

Turn ‘em both off.

Go barefoot.

Take a coat.

Wear a hat.

Turn the fan on.

Open the windows.

Close the windows.

Blow your nose.

Sneeze and blow.

Blow and cough and sneeze and blow.

March march march.

There she goes.

Marching to the beat of a mad drummer.

But a happy-go-lucky one.

Daffodils and narcissus.

Snowbells and hyacinths.

Flowering quince.

And celestials that turn lawns into magic.

What better way to bring Spring our way.

Than to spring along.

Cold days and hot.

Dry and windy.

Gray and sunny.

Cool and calm.

Tulips emerging.

Fruit trees blooming.

Bees buzzing.

Winter packing.

It’s just a madder of time.

That’s Mason.
