An April poem that puts all others in shadow; is the lyrical "April" by William Watson. (Books By This Author)
England's onetime poet laureate, he began the poem with the unforgettably beautiful expression which, reminds us that April is the girlish daughter of springtime: "April, April, laugh your girlish laughter, then, the moment after, weep your girlish tears.”
Laugh thy girlish laughter;
the moment after,
Weep thy girlish tears!
that mine ears Like a lover greetest,
If I tell thee, sweetest, All my hopes and fears,
Laugh thy golden laughter,
But, the moment after,
Weep thy golden tears!
