April leaving..

April leaving..

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Last day of April. The Poetry month.

"
Last day of April..

The month of April teaches us.
All things can be re-born, all things must die.

My red and white roses are beginning to bloom,
the tulips are beautiful white trying to touch the clouds.

I hear my grandchildren feet running wild and enjoying the Spring warm sun on their faces.
It is the last day of April and I have learn again.

We must live and we must die.
Baby sister died in early April.
She loved the days of April.

Today I am waiting for the month of May.
Grandchildren need the lakes and the parks.
And I will burn sage for the living and I will burn sage for the dead,
near Lake St. Clair.

I will sit in my yard today.
Wait for my garden to grow and
thank the Gods of life and death.
For the kindness of April.

Firstly, I didn't know the singer or the song so, I listened twice. At first I found both music and lyrics depressing, then.. to my surprise began to understand the mood and intention of the lyrics, the more than unfettered tone of the singer. Thank you for allowing me to share that.

As to your poem, it has both dark thoughts yet - some lovely phrasing:
'My red and white roses are beginning to bloom,
the tulips are beautiful white trying to touch the clouds'

'Today I am waiting for the month of May.
Grandchildren need the lakes and the parks.
And I will burn sage for the living and I will burn sage for the dead,
near Lake St. Clair.'

That, sir, is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

a splendid poem that I can wholly relate to Coyote .. so thank you for that my friend .. and thank you also for the wonderful offering made available by the still great and still going strong Marianne Faithfull .. quite possibly one of my most consistently loved female vocalists of all time ..

Lincoln was assassinated in April. The Titanic sank in April. Corregidor fell in April. FDR died in April. The Branch Davidian massacre happened in April. Maybe Eliot was right. Maybe it is the cruelest month.

The cycle of life and the yielding of the seasons is the cadence of life.
Your poem is beautiful and reflective as it leads us to summer.

Such a beautiful song and poem. We have to accept our mortality don't we. It is hard to. We are born to die but also born to love. I am thankful for the people in my life that I love.

Hellos, good wee-tides-evioli,
I love the scene of the rain drizzle upon the droven-porth (roof-top) into the pavement.
There is a couple, and a coke place. Like the olden day, with a new car.
Marrianne loved April. Loved that. Waited till May.
Love the video, love the write, hon
