April Showers Bring May Flowers

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Looking out my windowpane I see
The little robin bobbing for his worm
I hear birdsongs fill the air with glee
As flocks, once more, return home.

The velvety grass ticking my toes
As I walk barefoot and chase
Spring's first baby butterfly and choose
To let her escape my net with grace -

The garden tended with e'er so much care
The thistles and the buttercups are wild
But just as dainty, perhaps will fair
Better than the ones hands have toiled...

The sweet fragrance of magnolias
Spray across the sky and Easter lillies
Now become a memory, regalia
Foregone and the pathway filled for miles -

With violets and forsythia, daisies too
Oh what beauty amounts beneath the blue
Skies and puffy marshmallow clouds, you
Can't help but wonder but 'tis true -

Our Heavenly wonders bestowed on earth
The journeys of our youth reach far
Beyond the wisdom of the myrth
Brought to our Holy King and the stars

Now guide us and light the way
From the darkness of each night
Into the beauty of each new day
With rays of happiness shining bright -

The junipers ladened with fresh greens
The ponds rippling with bellowings
Of bullfrogs and the proud bees, queens
Pollinate the flowers and honey sucklings

Complete the cycle of nature once more
Each tiny being or plant a purpose serves
Adorn our tablescapes, hung upon doors
The lavender scent to relax wrought nerves.

In all the glory of Spring new hope is born
The cycle of Life renews our faith to Thee
We wash away the sins, for they are shorn
By the blood of Christ sacrifice, painfully -

We bear the loss with you yet cannot understand
How great He suffers still for in His death
There yet remains the inhumanity of man
I pause and stop to cry, refill an empty breast

For in Spring all is fresh and cleanliness prevails
I so enjoy the melodies of songs between
The creatures of the day and night, oceans' whales
With songs for miles heard, the winds and their gales

My yard bedecked with daffodills
Its banks lined with pink hyacinths
And the short lived pale jonquils
First to burst through with their scents

A myriad of colors will soon fill the beds
As flowers in their blooms spurt forth
A sea of wondrous glory, spring fed
Waters graced by God's kind earth

Tend the gardens in the night
Basked in a warming sun by day
Ah but for the Showers of April
Would there not be theflowers of May!

Poems My Way -Valrie 04/30/2011

Beautiful outside, a bit chilly but I do have jonquils, daffodills, and hyacinths to appreciate, and so many birds are tweeting aloud their songs of spring.

            Pink hyacinths are e'er so sweet to smell in the dew of the morning sunrise.
