March Writing Prompt

There is an expression about March that goes like this: March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb.

I think what this means is that the beginning of March is wintry, cold, and blustery . . . In other words: ferocious like a lion. But by the end of March, spring is in the air, and the weather is calmer, warmer, and less windy, i.e. more like a lamb.

That is usually the case here at the STACKS offices in New York City, but I wonder if this is true everywhere. Maybe in Australia, March comes in like a kangaroo, and goes out like a Tasmanian devil. In Alaska, maybe March comes in like a polar bear, and goes out like a caribou.

I don’t know, but YOU do! STACKers live all around the world, so for today’s Writing Prompt, fill in the blanks to describe March where you live!

March comes in like a ____________, and goes out like a _______________.

    March comes in like lightning and goes out like a tornado. For me March is all ways busy, because of Easter, spring break, and two birthdays in my family. By the end my head’s spinning from all the stuff I’ve done!

    I guess March comes in like excitement and goes out like joy because our exams start in the beginning of march and our vacations start by the end of march
