We are now into the first full month of spring. April is usually rainy, but this is the month when it gets truly warm. All nature lovers must love April because this is the month when it seems that all aspects of nature wake up and start really moving. We see more birds and animals, and the trees turn green once again. I just love this month because of these things.

by Sara Teasdale, 1884-1933
from Rivers to the Sea, 1915

The roofs are shining from the rain,
The sparrows twitter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace
The little clouds go by.

Yet the back yards are bare and brown
With only one unchanging tree--
I could not be so sure of Spring
Save that it sings in me.


  1. A nice poem...but our gardens are far from brown in the UK by April!!
