The taming of the lion, the lamb springs forth

The Ides of March

by JLR

Even-the-Odds Lion & Lamb Contest Winner 
Bounding
like gales of March
abuser, intruder
of the stillness bespoke of Spring
prancing like lions under winter's clutch
the Ides of March brings the whispers of 
a gentle calming breeze as
The lion is tamed,
The lamb now
leaps!

Evening Performance
By Y. M. Roger

Fairies
Flit through the air
Chromatic symphony
Of effulgent streaks and glitter
Performing 'neath where the trees meet the stars
Tonight, the crickets and frogs join in
Enhancing the vibrant show
You'll never forget
Dancing with
Sprites!
