April's Fooling Snow

April brings the snow,
Makes many hearts glow.
What a fuss folks make,
Like gales in circles blow.

The Gluttons are to eat "Hot Pot"s,
The vain are to flaunt wealth in minks.
The smug will take selfies("Moments"to share) ,
The sentimental will write lines(bubbles to air):

The single hope to find one to walk with,
The romantic hope to become snow-smith;
Busy bodies will go for snowball fight,
The Lovey-dovey will walk their hair white!

The snowfall is surely good, as always,
But city people here, they easily craze.

    ! I lost the rest of my comment, but ………it is in my brain, sort of; let me reconstruct it. A favorite line: “The Lovey-dovey will walk their hair white! ”..i assume “hair white” refers to snow accumulating on hatless heads as lovers stroll hand-in-hand/glove-in-glove. I’m enjoying the ‘intelligent’ and ‘skillful’ writing. I guess I’m a smug busybody who happens to be a glutton as well. Nice rhyming; thanks for NOT trying to rhyme with “mink”, I think. Bri :)

    It will snow here again tomorrow. Nothing I can do about it, so I will enjoy it and wait a little longer to plant my flowers. Congrats, Perdita.

    浪漫的希望融化在四月的爱之中。今年四月的积雪非常重视像河流一样为他人提供无私服务。降雪和温柔的爱情一样好。许多人的心因一阵雪花融化而下坠。在这首诗中绘制出一幅不错的图像,图像很好。这首诗是当天成员诗选的完美诗句。恭喜!这绝对是一首杰出的诗

    The romantic hope is melted with touch of love of April. This April's snow has great importance to flow like a river to provide selfless service to others. Snowfall is good as like as fall of tender love. Many hearts are glowed by touch of snow' melting and falling. A nice imagery is drawn in this poem with nice image. This poem is perfect poem chosen as the member poem of the day. CONGRATULATIONS! This is definitely an outstanding poem...10
