April Showers




April Showers
Bring Forth May Flowers


Especially gorgeous roses!


Carousel Rose







 False Promises Of Love Are Like Paper Roses,
Faded, then forgotten...

"Paper Roses"


 I realized the way your eyes deceived me
with tender looks that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers that you gave me
And send the kind that you remind me of
Paper Roses
Paper Roses
Oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation,
Like you imitation love for me
I thought that you would be a perfect lover
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start
But like a big red rose that's made of paper
There isn't any sweetness in your heart
Paper Roses
Paper Roses
Oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation like you imitation love for me

Of glory in the flower.....




Though nothing
 can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, 
of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, 
rather find,
Strength
 in what remains behind
- William Wordsworth 








 In time of silver rain
The earth puts forth new life again,
Green grasses grow
And flowers lift their heads,
And over all the plain
The wonder spreads

  Of Life,
  Of Life,
  Of life!

In time of silver rain
The butterflies lift silken wings
To catch a rainbow cry,
And trees put forth new leaves to sing
In joy beneath the sky
As down the roadway
Passing boys and girls
Go singing, too,

  In time of silver rain When spring
  And life
  Are new.


"In Time Of Silver Rain"
By Langston Hughes 



American Poet Langston Hughes


" The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit."- Psalm 34:18
