"Sweet April showers do bring May flowers."
"April rain is here again; hear it pitter pitter, patter on the
leaves and on trees. See it spitter, spitter, spatter rain,
oh rain don't go away we need you for flow'rs in May
Drip, drip, drop and do not stop, send a little rain our way."
~Nina B. Hartford~
"The first of April, some do say, is set apart for
All Fools' 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 1780~
