April Sonnet / Poem by Aprilia Zank

Poem by Aprilia Zank


April Sonnet

When winter days turn darkness into light
And sparrow’s voice is getting loud and gay
Brave March walks in with snowdrops fair and bright
And paints in green the meadows bare and grey

But soon he, too, must leave the conquered place
When lovely April and her court appear
She shows her princess face with charm and grace
And takes the reins without delay or fear

But lo, her moody quirks and whims beware
For she will play with storms and sun in turns
She’ll kiss you softly with a breeze of air
And then she’ll whip your face with hail that burns

So be on guard when she bestows her smile
Are you the one that she wants to beguile?
