April

Spring may not be here in full effect just yet, but April is and I am hopeful.
—————————————–
It’s Spring! Farewell
To chills and colds!
The blushing, girlish
World unfolds

Each flower, leaf,
And blade of turf –
Small love-notes sent
From air to earth.

The sky’s a herd
Of prancing sheep,
The birds and fields
Abandon sleep,

And jonquils, tulips,
DaffodilsBloom bright upon
The wide-eyed hills.

All things renew,
All things begin.
At church, they bring
The lilies in.

~John Updike.
