April


Walking by a meadow I see April in full bloom
Each blade of grass come back again from winter's frosty tomb
Each tree and shrub and hedge are wearing green to mark the time
Each vine is ready to repeat its daring upward climb
Even insects are abuzz with endless energy
As robins dressed in vests of red sing their soliloquies
Deer and rabbit, fox and fowl need not look far for food
As gentle rains and warming sun insure a tranquil mood
And as for me I too can feel my spirit rising high
As April's beauty warms the heart of every passer-by
