The Day Before April - Poem by Mary Carolyn Davies

The day before April
   Alone, alone,
I walked in the woods
   And I sat on a stone.

I sat on a broad stone
   And sang to the birds.
The tune was God's making
   But I made the words.

    I learned this poem at age 8 and recited it in school. I have always enjoyed it and found it coincidental that my fifth and last child was born on the day before April and she was a joy to raise and still a joy and I remain grateful that I was given this very good daughter. (Report) Reply
