April Ode

April 25, 2012
By Tom Baideme - 2011

Sitting on some holy steps

With the church in back to break the wind

Somewhere dry to sit a spell

And muse upon the new April showers

Heard the thunder claps last night

Though in the shelter saw no light

But outside felt the drizzled wind

As I ventured out in it

Went to check my favorite dives

To see what goods were left for me

Besides the coupons and/or news

And other goodies to take back home

Maybe salads, subs, or bites

Or even snacks or jugs of drinks

Some in need of grappling hook

Others to have to venture in

But here beside the park I sit

To watch the squirrels in running play

Certain sign that spring's arrived

After the advent of April showers

Again to end this ode to spring

Now that it's warm enough to sit a spell

To watch the wind blow naked limbs

Awaiting for their chance to bloom
