“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything” ~ William Shakespeare (Sonnet XCVIII) and now for some of my own words: I cannot remember the last fresh kiss that blew softly upon my lips, unlike the cold of the melting snow I yearn for moments of youthful bliss! Too soon we change our spring-tide ways, and let time distract our passions, empty heart'ed and a loss for love April call-back to the innocent days! ~ Lany Happy Day!

If you hadn't said I might have thought that your words came from the bard too! Excellent.

Once again we see that April is here But that is no reason to quote from Shakespeare I hasten say, as far as I remember Shakespeare is not even a member

Well - if you say he is not a member in person - then I would say YES - but being instrumental in the functionality of the ENGLISH Language, I would say he is an honourary member of note!

@Inlemay I must admit that I prefer Shakespeare's use of English to the current trend in text speech.

@Asylum my sentiment exactly. English as been so diluted, so to say.

A lovely start to a new month! Except I thought April was autumn in your part of the world?

It expression is nostalgic. You did that poem on your own? That was very creative of you. I used to create my own poems when I was in high school and college because I was very fond of words. I hope your April will be full of fun and I hope my April too will be like that.
