Here’s to a month of poetry and wine,

And Dutch tulips blooming in the bright sunshine

In between snowstorms, often heavy and wet,

That drive us back inside.  It’s not quite Summer yet.

Here’s to some rhymes that make us stop and think;

That teach us where to focus, when our moods begin to sink

From gloomy contemplation of the status of our world.

Heads up, chins out, get some happy flags unfurled.

Today’s day one of April with plenty of things to do.

This month spreads wide before us with traditions tried and true;

Birthdays and remembrances of people who were/are cool.

I am hoping I will finally not be the biggest April fool.
