With only thirty days to present herself
April never lets Spring get by without her pleasing, natural wonders, on display
At least in the northern hemisphere
She is enticingly, bouquet-rich… dressed in alluring colors,
Here in western Oregon . . .
Our rural landscapes blush handsome shades of greens
Some spots thanks to the handiwork of farmers
While other places beam naturally wild
All, are woven seamlessly together as a pastoral Earth quilt,
Causing our eyes to grin with delight
Perennial bulbs, bushes, and blossoming trees
Launch fourth from soaking, restoring, rains -
Promising now is yet another, Astounding April!
