APRIL and a FOOL


APRIL and a FOOL

April’s Fool day
Preceded her
April Fool’s day
by just one “fool”;
ME

That day before
I had a Life,
the next day
I had a wife;
SHE.


As April’s Fool
on April One
I said we do
and thus began
the fun.

Smiling impatiently
The Fools of April One,
‘SHE’ and ‘ME’
Became a
‘WE’ …

April Fool …
I’m single still!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
