An April Day
The sun comes out, the sun goes in,
The raindrops halt and march;
And when you're sure of damp and ark
Up comes the rainbow's arch.
Then, when you're sure of sun and shine,
Down comes the pouring rain!
The weather swings from fair to foul,
From foul to fair again.
There's neither rhyme nor reason here,
There's neither rhyme nor rule.
It's evident the April day
Is playing - April Fool.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Oh Little Child
Hush, little one, and fold your hands--
The sun hath set, the moon is high;
The sea is singing to the sands,
And wakeful posies are beguiled
By many a fairy lullaby--
Hush, little child--my little child!
Dream, little one, and in your dreams
Float upward from this lowly place--
Float out on mellow, misty streams
To lands where bideth Mary mild,
And let her kiss thy little face,
You little child--my little child!
Sleep, little one, and take thy rest--
With angels bending over thee,
Sleep sweetly on that Father's breast
Whom our dear Christ hath reconciled--
But stay not there--come back to me,
Oh, little child--my little child!
