Thursday Thrill – Diamond

April, mistress of May, dresses in dew and falling rain. Laughing light, silvery notes at Winter's gray glances, playfully mocking him with her spirited dance towards Earth. "Spring is here!", she triumphantly sings, her twinkling eyes alight in crystalline fire.

April's Dream

The stream's breath tastes of the wood's perfume, 
Filled are the woods with foam:
And the sea like a sheet 'neath the summer noon,
With the languorous swerve runs home.
The beat of a pulse the warm sun stirs
In the air, the sea and stream,
Beckons the heart- and the soul allures
Forth, into April's dream.

  23. Simply, sweepingly lovely post, array of items and choice of poetry, all of which made me think of my dear mother, whose birthday falls on the second of April and whose favourite gemstone is the diamond.
