COLORADO SUNSHINE

When April showers come pouring down
day after day with sullen frown . . .
and bright sunshine has gone to rest
where summer days are palmiest . . .
we soon forget that through the year
the sun shines on us most sincere . . .
than any place near or far
"that's why we so popular"!

A week of rain does more to earth
in bringing flowers forth from birth . . .
and every plant springs up and blooms
before you count a pair of moons . . .
And oh, the glory that they shed
from gardens or mountain beds . . .
We need those April showers, each one
because we have our share of sun!

What sunshine weather we can boast
is really a heavenly toast . . .
To have folks say . . ."Why do you live
where sunshine is infinitive?
And where you see the mountain peaks
and rustling winds in music speaks?
We think you are most fortunate
to live in such a sunny State!"

  2. Sunshine is life and energy ... and why not ... and the rain quenches ... and why not.

    Lovely poem Margie.
    May I sprinkle a little rain on your flowers.
    hugs for you. :o)

  6. Greetings dear Margie,
    from the "normally" sunniest spot on the Strait... back once more in the grip of slapping wind and heavy rains of another "Pineapple Express", courtesy of Gaia's natural restlessness over the Hawaiian islands....

    The State and Local Tourism offices must get a copy of this one!
    Love and joy to you and yours

  21. Am reminded of the summer tempest that we so often have down here. Its all shining the brightest of the sun, when all of a sudden rolls a thunder and a torrents bangs down on the earth in all its glory.

    And then, a rainbow appears..
