April Poem

Big image


by Winifred C. Marshall

The tulips that bloom by the old garden wall,

I play are fine ladies all dressed for a ball.

Some wear fluffy ruffles of yellow or white,

While others wear crimson or orange so bright.

If they're caught in a shower on their way to a ball,

The rain does not hurt their silk dresses at all;

They're washed in dewdrops and dried in the sun;

To wear rainproof dresses, I think would be fun.
