It’s Only April
Just as the Springtime raises its head,
Draws back the curtain, and leaps out of bed,
An icy cool blast creeps up slyly behind her,
With a churlish grin, as a callous reminder.
“It’s only April, you know my cruel powers,
I’ll bring forth high winds & colder, sharp showers,
I’ll sprinkle some sun, blow some gentle warm breezes,
But my changeable nature may leave you with sneezes!
Resist the temptation to pack away woolies,
Those easterly winds can be treacherous bullies!
There maybe some prospects of hail, or worse, snow,
That’s the way of the seasons, we’re crafty, you know!”
2nd April 2019
We’ve been lucky to enjoy some fairly decent weather as Spring approached, & then arrived. But, as is often the way, the weather likes to throw us a curveball, just to remind us not to get too excited about a bit of sunshine. Yesterday was one of those days..I went on my usual walk, & it was a lot colder, and then hailed! I was very glad I’d put my warmer jacket on, even as the sun popped in & out of the clouds. Thankfully, the precipitation had moved, & was falling on the hills opposite to where I was standing, by the time I took this photo. After that, this morning’s snow wasn’t so much of a shock!
