Sunday Morning Peace: April, the Tease

APRIL is such a tease. 
Warm and cold.
Sunny and cloudy.
Rainy and wet.
Budding trees and bursts of color.
Leftover brown leaves and greening grass.
A merry sprite.
A prankster laughing up her sleeve.
Tempting.
Delirious.
Wonderful.
Smile . . .

***

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March."

-  Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926
