April started just today
and yet it seems so far away,
a distant joke other people play
when they are young and full of life.
I remember being drunk with love,
with music and the stars above,
the cosy walks in sun and rain;
I hope we’ll do it all again
now that April’s here.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Poems in April Day 1: April Come She Will

Marian is our host for the first NaPoWriMo prompt of April and she has treated us with the beautiful Paul Simon song ‘April Come She Will’. I can’t believe he wrote it back in the sixties – it hasn’t aged at all.

Marian asks us to write a poem about love, the seasons changing, love affairs growing old, streams swelled with rain…

  1. to be drunk on the promise of Spring’s love is a promise of absolute wonder and delight ~ long may it live and breathe in our hearts ~ lovely poem Kim, a fine way to welcome the new season, a new month and perhaps the “madness” of trying to poem 30-for-30 😀
