Always April

Always April

A Poem by The Things She Noted

In winters snow 

On spring days 

April feels playful 

I do not 


She kisses my feet 

Wet and cold 

Brings me flowers 

I let them die 


Weeding out 

All the mud 

That dries my mind

April go away 


She cried today 

I can’t forget 

Her tears upon my skin 

I did not mean to be cruel 


You know

All that I know 

And all that I know 

Is you 


You with your buds 

Your water 

And growth

Quiet in your hellos 


Slow 

Steady 

You’ve won the race 

You’re seasoned 


Smart 

Wicked 

Cool 

April, this you must know 


But I can’t see you 

Not today 

Not like this 

I’m too tired 


So I stay inside 

Curtains drawn 

Don’t call

I won’t answer 


One more day 

Until you leave 

I’m not sure

If I’ll see you again 


I’ve been sad 

Too sad 

But you know that April

It’s hard for me to be happy 


Last x crossed 

Goodbye 

Flipped pages 

Calendar wisdom 


I’ll miss you April

I’m no good with goodbye 

You’ve left behind your flowers 

I’ll keep them by my bedside 


April you’re too good

But I’m stuck

In the winter of my life 

Barron and cold 


They all leave 

And that’s okay 

I’ll write about you

If I May

A wonderful poem shared for April.
"I’ll miss you April
I’m no good with goodbye
You’ve left behind your flowers
I’ll keep them by my bedside"
I liked the above lines a lot. I love the month of April also. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Thank you for your lovely comment :)
What's all this about April being the cruelest month? The speaker here realizes it has some shortcomings, but as the last few days pass into history, there is a sadness to see the month depart. Well, that's the way they all are; sooner or later they'll leave you. Last stanza was very clever.
