April snow~~~~~sort of a haiku

April snow
came to stay
every day
returning by night
April icicles
blanket the buds

Phil Everly, you made my day!

By now , gentle readers, you are well acquainted with my dislike, OK make that disgust with winter .  Four snowy days in a row in April might not be unheard of but it certainly is unbearable, for me at least!   As I watched the snow swirling around  in the fierce winds I was reminded of an interview on PBS with the Everly Brothers,  the TV was a black and white, with a 19" screen and  I bought it at Sears for ,well can't remember, my first TV, close 50 years I do digress.
PBS was the only channel that came in reliably, so I watched it a lot.   The  Everly Brothers were favorites of my favorite Aunt, them and Brenda Lee, so they are engraved in my childhood memories.  But to show you how well engraved, I only heard this song once,  and that was during that interview.  And as I was standing by the kitchen window several minutes ago, I remembered it.
And I thought, perhaps I should share this mellow song.

a poem for you

at  springtime's last chill
they come into town
over the hill
with footsteps that thaw
the icy ground

Mama makes them a new gown
feed sacks and needles
the finest stitching all round
sunshine in their smiles
weather heedless

Armloads of daffodils
that smiling faces peek around
ones heart thrills
and steps are lightened
glad greetings abound

A flower for every one
till there are none left
then over the hill and gone
leaving richer by far
our life's warp and wheft

lifes warp and wheftricher by far over the hill and gonetill there are none leftA flower for every oneand glad greetings aboundand steps are ligtenedones heart thrillsthat smiling faces peek aroundArmloads of daffodillsweather heedlesssunshine in thier smailesthe finest stitching all roundfeed sacks and neadlesMama makes s them a new gown

haiku~~~bare feet

Walking,walking on no place to go, sights to see walking on bare feet
