Welcome, April


Happy, Happy April...

A complete darling of a poem...
 ...from this magazine


Welcome wind, with warmer whispers
Welcome world, more comely clad
Welcome work that turns to blisters
Welcome weather, April-glad

Welcome, sunshine between showers
Welcome, dapper daffodil
Making worthwhile all the hours
Leading to ‘welcome April’

Welcome brook-bedazzled cello
Serenading sky and sod
Welcome, purple-green-pink-yellow
Bursting from the hand of God

Welcome, welcome, winter-farewell
Welcome, wonderland of spring
Welcome, welcome sweet, sweet April
Primed with buds waiting to sing
