April Showers


Every April the rain showers come

they awaken the earth

and greet the flowers

that are beginning to rise

soon there will be many lovely blooms

that will sparkle and glitter

beneath the raindrops

left from April showers


soft dripping of the rain

tapping against my window pane

puddles of water all around

running in streams

making reflections

great for daydreams

rain 2

soon April showers

will make way

for the sun that will come

in the month of May

the colorful flowers

tulips, daffodils, forget-me-nots and such

so wonderful to look at, smell and touch


eagerly waiting for lilacs to bloom

chasing away the gloom

which all these April showers

with their raindrops

bring as a promise

of days of butterflies and honeybees

beneath the sun and white sailing ships in the sky

while daydreaming

as spring breezes blow
