' APRIL


Puzzling dialogues grow facile,
April is a month of dates,
The cherry-plum blossoms in April,
And for the love it happily waits.

The maiden has a date in April,
Her heart is full of adoration…
O spring! Just you hold me back,
Or else, I’d have left the Creation.

    Tsira,

    well done: good rhymes and nice words. Let alone, this month is very special because of 1st April. Any time I meet the word 'April', I remember I haven't finished my poem about an April fool. Sorry, but i don't know when it'll happen.

    TS Eliot's April was the cruelest. Your 'April is a month of dates', differently expressed poem with a positive view. Yes,10. (Report) Reply

    The last two lines are striking, 'I would have left creation' really provokes the reader. (Report) Reply

    I sort of made fun of April in my poem 'November Love'
    but you described it wonderfully.

    the beauty of spring, how it slowly arrives with the melting of the snow, the breeze, and the warm and infectious laughter of children in school that set the spring mood going. the coming of spring is like the birth of a new child. good write tsira. (Report) Reply

    'Laughing with gleaming smile,
    Luminous eyes and flowing tresses,
    Light brown skin soft and supple,
    Let me compare thee to the splendour
    Of Spring, together for the first time
    You and I; seems befitting as Nature
    renews itself once again. Miracle! '

    -from my Song For Spring,1995


    Tsira, a delightful read. xx Gregory (Report) Reply

    Very nicely done. It reminded me of the first
    poem I ever wrote, it was about love in April
    and November.
