The Art of April...(Home of the Masters;-)

  PAD Challenge day 12: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “The Art of (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem 

 Every year Ontario-ans have a love-hate affair with April!

Artist that fuels the optimist’s grin
While colors duel twixt winter and spring
Sepia surface primed for floods of green
Suffers the surges of caught in-between
While high and low flings its yearly travail
Seasonal seesaw of zephyr and gale
Eager eyes scanning the soft-swelling bud
Waiting for wonders to fan from the mud
Where April’s artist, brush dripping with flow’rs
Teases the landscape with snow-stippled showers
Vexing and cheering with gold gilt then white
Unleashing tides of chagrin and delight
While hearts and temps, like golf-balls, soar then drop
Annual tug-of-war in Time’s weather-shop
Teaching the patron of petal-plumed flit
The fine art of patience while waiting for it
