"March! March! March! They are coming
In troops to the tune of the wind.
Redheaded woodpeckers drumming,
Gold - crested thrushes behind;
Sparrows in brown jackets, hopping
Past every gateway and door;
Finches, with crimson caps, stopping
Just where they stopped before.
March! March! March! They are slipping
Into their places at last. . .
Literature white lily buds, dripping
Under the showers that fall fast;
Buttercups, violets, roses;
Snowdrop and bluebell and pink,
Throng upon throng of sweet posies
Bending the dewdrops to drink.
March! March! March! They will hurry
Forth at the wild bugle sound,
Blossoms and birds in a flurry,
Fluttering all over the ground.
Shake out your flags, birch and willow!
Shake out your red tassels, larch!
Grass blades, up from your earth - pillow.
Hear who is calling you. . . March.
So pretty, and just the thing to get me thinking about Spring on this snowy snowy day! Here's what I came up with:
I chose to use just a few lines from the poem, "Literature white lily buds, dripping, Under the showers that fall fast; Buttercups, violets, roses; Snowdrop and bluebell and pink, Throng upon throng of sweet posies; Bending the dewdrops to drink". Printed directly on my pattern paper, along with my Etsy Inspired Title. I also added some glossy effects to the title, just to make it stand out a little. Used another flower from Precocious Paper, I just LOVE her handmade flowers! Handstitched X's for a quick accent, stapled ribbon on the photo for handmade photo corners, and there ya have it! =) T
