March in like a lion.....

In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb
This phrase has its origins with the constellations Leo, the Lion, and Aries, the ram or lamb. It has to do with the relative positions of these constellations in the sky at the beginning and end of the month.. ..but I think most people think that it has to do with the weather. Fierce in it's entry and gentle when it leaves. What does this mean where I live. Yesterday (March 1)was +4 degrees C and today (March 2) it is -31 c with the windchill. Can't make up it's mind. Still it's nice to know that spring is just around the corner (weeks away instead of months) The sun is warmer and the days are getting longer. I can't wait :)

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.
