Old woman says April is no matter
Like a tulip and a dog about a rival.
Let us peace together by lamppost.

Old woman says go on with  flutter
All you  world changers in a twitter.
April is no matter about old women.

April is not like other breeding April
When she first came here with such
A ruckus as if she owned the world.

(After reading Alicia Ostricker’s poem “April”)
