a weary war-god
set to guard sheep
for 11 months


March - the month of Mars, the Roman god of war - comes to an end. April - the month of "opening" the earth - takes over. An ancient Danish name for April is "Sheep-month", the month when sheep and cattle again was let out to grass. Another name was "Grass-month".
