April
White clouds lazily reclining

in the softness of a sky of blue.

Warm sunshine basking our bodies

as we stroll the avenue.

Soft pastels grace the gardens that abound,

as the birds chirp their delightful sound.

The green grass will soon be in sight

as the days grow longer and stay so bright.

We experience a delicious feeling

as the thought of spring engulfs our very being.

-- Honey Snitzer
