Poems for April

Page history last edited by Ann Vipond 3 years, 6 months ago

 

The sun was warm, but the wind was chill.

You know how it is with an April day

When the sun is out and the wind is still.

You're one month on in the middle of May.

But if you so much as as dares speak,

A cloud come over the sunlit arch

and wind comes off a frozen peak.

And you're two months back in the middle of March

Robert Frost Two Tramps in Mud Time 1926

“And Spring arose on the garden fair

Like the spirit of love felt everywhere;

and each flower and herb on earths dark breast

rose from the dreams of it's winter rest”

Percy Bysshe Shelley

The sensitive Plant.

The lyric sound of laughter

Tells all the April hills

The joy song of the crocus

The mirth of daffodils.

Clinton Scollard Quotes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The first of April, some do say

Is set apart for all fools day

But why the people call it so

Nor I, nor they themselves do know

But on this day are people sent

on purpose for pure merriment

 

Poor Robins Almanac 1790

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers.

Of April, May, or June, and July flowers.

I sing of Maypoles, Hock-carts, Wassails,

Of bridegrooms, brides, and and bridal cakes.

Robert Herrick, Hesperides 1688
