April love

April love

On a frozen April morning when the frost was in the trees
There was blossom like a snowstorm as the sun warmed up the breeze
There were blackbirds making music teaching angels how to sing
While the bees began to forage, golden humbugs on the wing

Daffodils were slowly swaying under bushes turning green
And a bluetit woos his lady in a spot he thinks unseen
There’s a fox that’s heading homeward jumping fences on the way
Everything is looking perfect as the spring gets underway

As I whistled to the starlings that were sweeping up the street
And I skipped along the pavements missing cracks with both my feet
I was feeling very silly under skies so clear and blue
And it’s all your fault my darling since you whispered “I love you”
