Poetry of Kansas

April

A prophesy of good so fair, tingeing all the sweet spring air
With future joys of perfume rare is April.
 
Like a charming dainty girl, with her curls in a whirl,
Rose leaf skin and teeth of pearl is April.
 
Sometimes sad and sometimes gay, tears and smiles all in one day.
Just before the flowers of May comes April.

__Mae C. Patrick
