O it's April there

O it's April there When the mango blossoms turn to seed And budding pear Call the honey bee from flowery weed And the maypole dancers are preparing For May day fairs, and youth wild cheering. O it's April there And lapis lazuli dance upon the seas And maidens fair Like butterflies frolic in the balmy breeze. And all my heart is under the tree waiting For you to come, funny face, and smiling. O it's April there When Don and I turn our hearts to the reef Diving corals where Beauty is a panorama of colors beyond belief But O my heart is under the tree waiting For you to come, funny face, and smiling.

Lovely images of spring, Shango. The coral reefs are indeed "a panorama of colors beyond belief." Have you ever snorkeled off Key Largo or the Bahamas? Some of the best reefs I've seen. Great poem (as always)!
