Ode to April – National Poetry Month day 15 with Jodey Mann

Welcome to National Poetry Month day fifteen.  Happy Tax day.  I hope you all filed!  😉

Today I have my good friend since jr. high, accomplice in untold deeds, beta reader and fellow poet, Jodey Mann.  I had trouble picking a date in April for this.   Hard to believe there are so many things to celebrate and remember in April.  Enjoy!

 

Ode to April

April first the day of fools

Be on your guard and bend the rules

Prank your kin, your friend, your mate

But keep your pranking to this date

 

Awareness month with no regret

For Autism let’s not forget

Poetry is honored here

In our hearts hold poets dear

 

Arbor Day for planting trees

And plant some flowers if you please

A pretty garden around the trunk

To offset smells like angry skunk

 

Taxes owed and taxes paid

The government takes what we’ve made

If you’re lucky, when you sign your name

You’ll get a refund with your claim

 

Hopping bunnies Peeps and chicks

Chocolate eggs are in the mix

Baskets full of treats and toys

Easter fun for girls and boys
