pitter, patter, on the leaves and on the
trees, see it spitter, spitter, spatter.
Rain, oh rain, don't go away we need
you for flowers in May; drip drip, drop
and do not stop, send a rain our way."
~Nina B. Hartford~
"The first of April, some do say, is set
apart for All Fool's Day. But why the
people call it so, nor I, nor they themselves
do know. But on this day are people sent
on purpose for pure merriment."
~poor Robin's Almanac, 1790~
