A picture of April as it would have been many years ago, when showers washed the meadows and the glades.


If the wind changes and the showers fall heavily on meadows and glades April is Green,
Buds and leaves grow quickly on these green days everyone can see that there is a sun,
Walk through villages, commons and steep lands, the sun reflects off the thick grass,
Larks sing as they twist and wrestle with warm air watched by blackbirds in old trees,
Across the commons large flocks of goslings the same shade of green as a willow catkin,
And gorse in bloom right along the hedge sides in dells and woods lying in the sunshine,
Their faint scented perfume and scented wood anemones are in their thousands over fields,
The turf is sown with violets while cowslips grow buds over the meadows and flower early.

I love Spring Time with its promise of new life , and new hope . It has been a long time since I have seen a wild cowslip, so thank you for this memory.
