Astounding April - By Dan'l MclLhenny

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!
