April 16

April Tulip


The day April showers bring May flowers

What do those showers do for the April blooms?

Whether gentle or hard, minutes or hours

They create blossoms to brighten the gloom

Bringing in the new season with perfume.

Colorful flowers bedazzled with drops

Rather than slicker it’s a rain costume

Embellished with jewels from bottom to top.

So it seems that these spring thundershowers

Accessorize but don’t over power.


(A Decuain Poem)
