From where this April rolled out
In my blanched and crusted world!
Like the first splatter of rain drops
on a parched neglected tin shed
Like the first shimmer of sunshine
in the oldest caverns of earth.
They came, they came,
yes, together they came
April, sunshine and rain
Cleaving down their way
Into the deepest gorges
As if unable to resist the call
Of the void, the thirst, the ache.
Ah! April, rain and sunshine
In a rivulet, they well combine
The rivulet that now flows by me
Like a silken, drowsing lullaby
For long we had sought each other
In the end, they found me a melting snowflake
In the end, i found them a blooming rainbow
And a place to peacefully melt in.
