Always Marry An April Girl

Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor,
April cold with sudden anger,
Ever changing, ever true --
I love April, I love you.

Describes my sister-in-law Avril perfectly. Of course her birthday is in April!
wow superb poetic word on APRIL
April the season- -April a Girl. Works either way but what a powerful description of a young woman to combine the two
Beautiful poem with haunting expressions. Interesting to read.
I smile. There’s a whole lot of humor between the lines in these verses, in this brief commentary, as I take it, on a husband adjusting himself, learning to love, the contrary moods of his wife. -GK
