March Summary in English
The Poem ‘March’ is written by William Wordsworth. He was a famous romantic poet. In this poem, the poet lyrically describes the beauty of nature during the spring season.
Spring is a colourful season. It brings cheerfulness and new activity in all living beings the world appears fresh and beautiful, and evokes a sort of new vigour in all living beings.
Here the poet observes that in spring time, the cock crows early at sunrise heralding a new and beautiful day. The streams, nearby flowing lazily. As it is green and colourful everywhere, the birds twitter happily sitting on the lush green trees. The green fields appear to be sleeping in the warm sunny morning.
After the long winter the people of the village are working in their fields. The old and young together are at work with the other strong (youthful) people of the village.
The cattle are grazing happily without even raising their heads. This appears like the idiom ‘Forty feeding like one’ All their heads are bent and they are grazing in unison.
The snow on the land ” is melted in the warm spring sun. Only a little snow is left on the top of bare hills (now doth fare ill). The snow is compared to a defeated army which has retreated humiliated, far away from the battle. The Plough boy, w ho is plouging the field is shouting anon – anon (sooner – sooner) joyously.
The mountains slopes are now’ filling up with colourful plants, a sight which brings joy to the eye and mind of the observer. The springs flowing down the mountain slopes are now alive with’water from the melting snow.
Little clouds are floating about under the blue sky. The rain and snow of the winter season is over and gone, and the weather at spring time is pleasant and joyful.
