Much Ado About April Part Three

Much Ado About April Snow MTRA

Playing at the front door

A melancholy wintry aire

Did recall  a white refrain.

Unpathed ways led to a sleeping  Spring.

How to bring colour to a pale grey gown ?

How to return merriment to a chilled frown ?


Much Ado About April Snow 2 MTrpPLy


Behold ! What comes this way ?

‘Tis a Troupe of Most Extraordinayrie Puppeteers .

The very thing to  lighten

This dark & drearie  cold aire.

They hoist their props

Taking trailer to the April road.

Wheels roll, tracks unfurl.

Undreamed shores reveled in white mist.

April light  by snow is kissed.


Much Ado About April Dreams & Snow on Roads  MTRA


April dreams of bouquets & fluttery melodies.

The glistening road is white trimmed,

Like a middle-aged salesman’s hair

From too many days at the wheel.

Longing for a home,

A garden made merry

With bird song & dancing wings,

The maiden wakes from her swoon.

Magical figures rise in fanciful memory.

All Much Ado –

About whether this chill shall melt

Into the air,…… like so many dreams .

  2. I have to say, I have enjoyed your “Much Ado About April” much more than I have enjoyed April itself. Now kind, Sir, May we fare well in May?

      I await May merriment. The fine drizzle this morning briefly turned to snow. At least it wasn’t as bad as Calgary. I find it hard to sympathize with Calgary – they who gave us Harper government, Tar Sands & climate change. Their mayor is a shining light.
