NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography
. James Lane Allen (1849- ) is a native of the South, having been born on a farm near Lexington, Kentucky. He was educated at Transylvania University, and for a time was Professor of Latin and English at Bethany College, West Virginia, but since 1886 he has devoted himself entirely to literature.

Discussion. 1. In what poetic words does the author say that in March he begins to think of spring? 2. How do plants "stretch arms upward and leas downward"? 3. How does "Nature do her spring house-cleaning"? 4. After house-cleaning, what does Nature do? 5. To whom does she send invitations to visit her? 6. When are these invitations accepted? 7. Compare the picture of spring in this selection with those in the two poems preceding; which picture do you like best? 8. Find in the Glossary the meaning of: cranny; emerald.

MARCH
WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

The cock is crowing;
The stream is flowing;
The small birds twitter;
The lake doth glitter;
The green field sleeps in the sun;
The oldest and youngest
Are at work with the strongest;
The cattle are grazing,
Their heads never raising;
There are forty feeding like one!
