Day 6: An Ode to April

A few days ago, Dana Guthrie Martin posted a prompt about writing an ode to April. Since spring is not my favorite season, I decided to think about what other poets have had to say on the subject and just have a little fun with it.

Odes to April

*

To Hughes, a rain singer

playing a sleep-song

kissing your face.

*

Greeting cards in pastel

hues and hollow bunny

bodies. Babies in lace.

*

To Goethe, a truthful

loving bosom. A slow

return to the sun’s embrace.

*

First fingers of green

poking through the dirt.

The thud of spikes on first base.

*

To Elliot, the cruellest

month. To Emily,

an absent place.
