APRIL SHOWERS

54 comments


Inspired by the Al Jolson song …

Life is not a highway strewn with flowers …

Still it holds a goodly share of bliss …

When the sun gives way to April showers …

Here’s a thought that we should never miss …

Though April showers …

May come your way …

They bring the flowers …

That bloom in May …

So if it’s raining …

Have no regrets …

Because it isn’t raining rain, you know …

It’s raining violets …

And when you see clouds …

Upon the hills …

You soon will see crowds …

of daffodils …

So keep on looking for the bluebird …

And listening for his song …

Whenever April showers come along …
