Positively APRIL with a chance of showers

by Mauverneen

Besides those infamous April Showers, April brings us Arbor day, Tax day, Earth day and baseball. Since it is also National Poetry month I have written a poem – an ode to April. I also have some April showers pictures for you and a little bit of April Trivia.

 April fools and April showers
Although the latter brings the flowers

April can be crazy, true

We just hope it’s storms are few

The grass is green, the trees in bud
Let’s hope that rain won’t cause a flood

Let’s Play Ball! and plant a tree
And then we’ll write some poetry

With taxes due and taxes done
Break out the shorts, go for a run

April is a fickle time
With violets, lilacs, dandelion

Although it’s bashful, coy, and shy
Spring is here, let’s dance for joy!

April starts on the same day of the week as July, (January in leap year) and April ends on the same day of the week as December every year.

Several countries celebrate various Freedom and Independence days during the month of April.
April 25 is Liberation Day in Italy, a National Holiday that celebrates the end of Nazi Germany's occupation of Northern Italy.
