Gray sky

Roaring thunder

And lightning

The first April rain

Finally came pouring.

It's a sure sign of spring

So wash away your tears

Shove those pains away.

April rain comes pouring

To rejuvenate life

Spring breeze waves to

Renew, refresh and

Make you sneeze for more blessings.

Soon birds will be humming

Brighter days are on their way

Flowers will be blooming

It’s a new awakening.

No more cloudy and hazy days

So set your spirit high now

It's time to fly and shine again.

Be thankful for April rain

Splashing puddles to clear the field

Crispness afterwards and

Freshness to free your route

So you can sing again with glee and

Dance in the field with a joyful heart.

      What a lovely poem Cris. I love the rain. We got the first in months recently and the grass turned from brown to green in one day. The birds began to sing again and flowers bloom. I love the rain and it's aftermath. Voted up.

      coffeegginmyrice, my friend--so nice to see you here. Rain is refreshing and I love it (and the after rain scent)! Just not too much and flooding. :) Sure, it'll be fun to play in the rain. There's just something nostalgic about it. Thanks for coming by. See you around...

      April showers are blessings we all need to be grateful of. How unfortunate in some places around the world that don't get visited by rain; so there is no complaining whenever rain comes pouring above our heads. Enjoy every drop!

      Nice poem, my good friend! Let's go out and have fun in the rain.

      We tend to get a lot of rain here in the Pacific NW, but it does keep the grass green and help make the flowers grow. Liked your poem, as it had an uplifting feel to it. Yay, spring is on the way! : ) Voted it up!

      Hello Sue, glad to see you here. Much as I got excited to feel April rain, today it seems that winter is not leaving the Canadians yet...snowstorm on the forecast. Really, in April?
