WELCOME THE MONTH OF APRIL
This I saw on n April day: warm rain split from a sun-lined cloud, a sky-flung wave of gold at evening, and a cock pheasant treading a dusty path shy and proud.
And this I found in an April field: a new white calf in the sun at noon, a flash of blue in a cool moss bank, and tips of tulips promising flowers to a blue-winged loon.
" April rain is here again; hear it pitter, 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 so not stop, send a little rain our way."
~Nina B. Hartford~
" April, April laugh they girlish laughter; then, the moment after, weep thy girlish tears."
