Almost April

It is almost time for April
to arrive in colors bright.
Forsythia shines in yellow,
hyacinth in blue delight.
The wildflowers pop up pink,      pink wildflowers
apple blossoms white as snow
while dandelions hug the lawn     dandelion
to begin the springtime show.

It is almost time for April
but it’s raining every day.
Can it be that all these showers
will keep falling until May?
