The Month of April

The sun was warm but the wind was chill

You know how it is with an April day

When the sun is out and the wind is still

Youre one month on in the middle of May

But if you so much as dare to speak

A cloud comes over the sunlit arch

And wind comes off a frozen peak

And youre two months back

In the middle of March

Promises of Spring

That God once loved a garden We learn in Holy writ And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it ~ W M Letts ~

April Showers Bring May Flowers

The April rain the April rain

Comes slanting down in fitful showers Then from the furrow shoots the

grain And banks are fledged with nesting flowers And in grey shawl

and woodland bowers The cuckoo through the April rain

Calls once again

~ Mathilde Blind ~

And on the Seventh Day He got paid

In church my three-year-old insists on being the one to put the

money into the collection basket One Sun- day as the basket came

toward him he held out the envelope and asked aloud When is God

coming to pick up his paycheck

~ Chris A Mo ~

I Know that Lady We ran into our minister at the mall but my son

couldnt place her It was only later that it hit him I know that lady he said

She goes to our Church

~ Charles S StLouis Mo ~

Spring If Spring came but once in a century instead of once a year

or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence

what wonders and expectations there would be in all hearts to behold

the miraculous change But now the silent succession suggests nothing

but necessity To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be

miraculous and the perpetual exercise of Gods power seems less

wonderful than its withdrawal would be

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~

Promises of Spring

That God once loved a garden We learn in Holy writ And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it ~ W M Letts ~

April Showers Bring May Flowers

The April rain the April rain

Comes slanting down in fitful showers Then from the furrow shoots the

grain And banks are fledged with nesting flowers And in grey shawl

and woodland bowers The cuckoo through the April rain

Calls once again

~ Mathilde Blind ~

And on the Seventh Day He got paid

In church my three-year-old insists on being the one to put the

money into the collection basket One Sun- day as the basket came

toward him he held out the envelope and asked aloud When is God

coming to pick up his paycheck

~ Chris A Mo ~

I Know that Lady We ran into our minister at the mall but my son

couldnt place her It was only later that it hit him I know that lady he said

She goes to our Church

~ Charles S StLouis Mo ~

Spring If Spring came but once in a century instead of once a year

or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence

what wonders and expectations there would be in all hearts to behold

the miraculous change But now the silent succession suggests nothing

but necessity To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be

miraculous and the perpetual exercise of Gods power seems less

wonderful than its withdrawal would be

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~

The Month of April

The sun was warm but the wind was chill

You know how it is with an April day

When the sun is out and the wind is still

Youre one month on in the middle of May

But if you so much as dare to speak

A cloud comes over the sunlit arch

And wind comes off a frozen peak

And youre two months back

In the middle of March

~ Robert Frost 1926~

coming to pick up his paycheck

~ Chris A Mo ~

I Know that Lady We ran into our minister at the mall but my son

couldnt place her It was only later that it hit him I know that lady he said

She goes to our Church

~ Charles S StLouis Mo ~

Spring If Spring came but once in a century instead of once a year

or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence

what wonders and expectations there would be in all hearts to behold

the miraculous change But now the silent succession suggests nothing

but necessity To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be

miraculous and the perpetual exercise of Gods power seems less

wonderful than its withdrawal would be

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ~

Promises of Spring

That God once loved a garden We learn in Holy writ And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it ~ W M Letts ~

April Showers Bring May Flowers

The April rain the April rain

Comes slanting down in fitful showers Then from the furrow shoots the

grain And banks are fledged with nesting flowers And in grey shawl

and woodland bowers The cuckoo through the April rain

Calls once again

~ Mathilde Blind ~

And on the Seventh Day He got paid

In church my three-year-old insists on being the one to put the

money into the collection basket One Sun- day as the basket came

toward him he held out the envelope and asked aloud When is God

coming to pick up his paycheck

~ Chris A Mo ~

I Know that Lady We ran into our minister at the mall but my son

couldnt place her It was only later that it hit him I know that lady he said

She goes to our Church

~ Charles S StLouis Mo ~

Spring If Spring came but once in a century instead of once a year

or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence

what wonders and expectations there would be in all hearts to behold

the miraculous change But now the silent succession suggests nothing

but necessity To most men only the cessation of the miracle would be

miraculous and the perpetual exercise of Gods power seems less

wonderful than its withdrawal would be
