End of April Couplets 2022

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

End of April Couplets 2022

This April brought a record spring snowfall

to share the notes of Nightingale's call


I say this life is but a written page

of us trying to earn a living wage


to take some tome from busy day to read

a breath, sufficient money for our need


to witness as I spread my wings and fly

release to air a whimper and a cry


to understand these feelings that I share

a passion to create a world that's fair


only lost echoes of my lonely rants

this is my plea I have only one chance


will heat my morning as I start to run

the weight of grief rides upon shoulder's ton


my poetry seen once then out of sight

the only training I have for this fight


through work and trying to eat healthy foods

and find a routine to tame all my moods


to realize this path is as I feared

and every obstacle in road is never cleared


early morning birds begin to sing

as morning bells in mind begin to ring.
