Dear March-Come in-

How glad I am-

I hoped for you before-Put down your Hat-

You must have walked-

How out of Breath you are-

Dear March, Come right up the stairs with me-

I have so much to tell-I got your Letter, and the Birds-

The Maples never knew that you were coming-till I called

I declare-how Red their Faces grew-

But March, forgive me-and

All those Hills you left for me to Hue-

There was no Purple suitable-

You took it all with you-Who knocks? That April.

Lock the Door-

I will not be pursued-

He stayed away a Year to call

When I am occupied-

But trifles look so trivial

As soon as you have comeThat Blame is just as dear as Praise

And Praise as mere as Blame-

This poem portrays almost a dialogue, where a narrator is talking to March. If March was a person, than this poem would be a perfect example of a conversation one could have with March. This poem is the most light spirited and humorous of the anthology. Here, you can just simply enjoy the humor and casual cheerfulness of the poem.
The poem is opened with an invitation to March as if he were standing at the door. The poet personifies March as a person when they tell March to “put down” his “hat” which is something only a person would wear. You can imagine March as a person and how he is “out of breath” after walking. As March comes in, it can be assumed that with the arrival of March, that means winter must have left. The narrator of the poet apologizes for how the hills were not the right color of “purple suitable” for March because when March had last left, he took all the purple with him. That shows that winter must have left recently, as the hills have not turned the right color. Next, when April knocks on the door, the narrator of the poem calls out at March to “lock the door,” and that they would “not be pursued”. The narrator seems to be annoyed with April, commenting on how April calls while the narrator is already occupied and enjoying the company of March. The last two lines are about how praise and blame are related to each other. Here the narrator says that blame is praise and praise is blame. When someone blames March for taking away the beautiful purple hues of the hills, it is also praising March for bringing those very gorgeous colors. Basically what March takes away, it also brings and that is why blame and praise follow each other.
In the form of a dialogue, this poem is free verse. Although there are no rhymes, this poem is already so musical in that there are short phrases that just sound good; it seems that there is almost no need for rhymes.
What the poem is trying to show may be that when you have waited patiently for something and it shows up at your door, greet it warmly and enjoy it while it stays.
