This is the Hour





This is the hour
Where April’s last shower
Has spilled its endearments to spring’s breathless bud
And this is the chapter
Where May’s buoyant laughter
Kisses the landscape in emerald flood

We sign our pardon
In bare feet and gardens
Instant forgiveness for winter’s long stay
For this is the hour
Of sunshine and flower
As April’s last shower slips up and away

It's as if May knew we were expecting the opposite of April's lingering showers! We have four days of sunshine in the forecast!

  1. Thank-you Lisa, I'm sure you all are ready for some warmer temps as well! Last week we still had snow a couple of days and this week really does sound like 'bare feet weather'!
