March Tee (1889) (Ivory)

While others celebrated New Year’s Eve, Walter Crane (1845–1915) mourned December’s passing. Created sometime around 1889 with his daughter Beatrice (1873–1935), The Procession of the Months synthesizes Walter’s two earlier treatments of the calendrical theme, reflecting age across the gutter between text and image. Walter illustrated the verse that Beatrice wrote. In the case of The Procession of the Months, it seems the images came later, for the preface notes the poem’s creation when she was “quite a child”, demonstrating how “each Season, with its ever-changing beauties, was fully realized by the child’s quick, artistic imagination.” 
March
The wind is rising high, to drive the mist away, and herald the approach of March, his mistress gay. She comes with eyes so wild, quick rushing o'er the plain, her flying hair let loose, not to be bound again. Her garments tinted green flutter all loose and free, the wind so full of play tosses the folds in glee. And as she comes along with eyes now full of mirth, the crocuses spring up like flames from the dark earth. But now the wind grows still, she must depart she knows, and, smoothing back her hair, all quietly she goes.
