April’s Gifts

April’s a gift tied with ribbons of rain,

Silken and silvery. Over again

April’s a green world with

dove-colored weather,

And wet nights that glisten like

Black patent Leather!

~Maureen Cannon


P.S. For today a change of white’s and blacks fill

the blue skies. Dusting, clouding, moistening the grounds.

Yes it is snowing in April. ~ Joseph Lieungh
