April Music - Poem by s./j. goldner

I'd like to spend
April, sitting on a hill,
With a mushroom for
a parasol and violets
for a frill. And the
wind for a violin, To
play spring tunes,
And the blossoms in
the treetops, For gay
balloons. I'd like to spend
April sitting on a
mound, Watching for
the flowers to pop out
of the ground. With
their green silk stockings,
And new spring clothes,
Trying to look taller
by dancing on their toes!


1993

    I've been looking for a good 'springtime' poem. It puts a smile on your face, imagining the serene situation. Garden of Eden-esque. (Report)Reply

    Golden cords playing music, among blossoms and call us to dance. Splendid imagery of April (heart of the Spring) . Golden cords shining under the sun of poetry! I give 10+ to amazing Susan of 9 years old! ! Thanks dearest Susan.

    I liked this poem because it had April in it's title, and I could greatly appreciate how the music provided a comparison to nature. I thought this was nice and surrealistic. (Report)Reply
