March ~1917

Poem from Bettina.

March is upon us, one of the more challenging months. Here’s a short poem from the wonderfully entertaining A Thousand Ways to Please a Husband that expresses all.

Weary are we of winter-time fare;

Hasten, O Springtime, elusive and arch!

Bring us your danties, our cupboards are bare!

Pitty us! Starved by tyrannical March!

Set in WWI, Bettina offers insights into everyday life of a newlywed.
