APRIL

Ah, winsome little April!

Who can resist your wiles?

Your darling face now wet with tears,

Now wreathed with sunny smiles.

 

Above the dull clouds round you

Old Sol looks down in glee,

While yet the pelting rain doth pour

Upon you steadily.

 

Have patience, little April,

He knows what he’s about;

The raindrops soon will disappear

And he’ll come shining out.

 

And you and he together

Will work to clear the way,

On which are brought spring’s blossoms

By your sweet sister May.
