Understanding April



 After warm gold last week
 we're back to gray cold this week,
 but what we have is never all there is...


Drape your cape of gray around me
Something akin to violin lilt
Rides the breeze and ruffles the trees
Rousing the seamstress of green-thread gilt

Weigh the day in April showers
Purpose often does not tell its span
But lends tincture to the picture
Pressed kindly into God’s bigger plan

Laugh your autograph in raindrops
Trip across the dripping afternoon
For I can sense more than pretense
Wafting flower-laden in yon boon
