APRIL SHOWERS BRING . . .
may flowers, flooded rivers and
lots of green in the forest and woodlands.
Despite a Spring full of rainy days
and stormy weather,
the woods are quickly greening up . . .
with groves of tulip trees, fat snails,
overnight mushroom crops,
lichens covering soggy branches
and the sweet smell of the wet forest floor.
A walk through the wilderness shows
a promise of a healthy summer ahead.
And they say the peach crop will be good this year.
That's good. That's very good.
(Got to stay positive.)
