"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    @dope this can be meant figuratively, where someone is constantly teasing or challenging the other person, as if he is fighting (with a sword - fencing).

    to fence - sword flighting
    prod - poke - in this sense like poke fun at someone
