April is the month

April is the month
when you expect the unexpected
when showers fall haphazard through
the fissures in normality

April is the month
when the trees are thick with blossom
when the hedgehogs wake from torpor
and feast on sluggish piskies

April is the month
when you know to carry sunblock
a sturdy sword and buckler
warm gloves and sprite-repellent

April is the month
when the dragonbane’s in season
beside the meadow primose
so much cheaper than from Tesco’s.

April is the month
when you don’t make hard predictions
when you reel off words of weather-lore
as talismans to chaos
