April Showers

-- John Ruskin

If you took away everything in the world that had to be invented, there'd be nothing left except a lot of people getting rained on.
-- Tom Stoppard


As against having beautiful workshops, studios, etc., one writes best in a cellar on a rainy day.
-- Van Wyck Brooks




Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.
-- John Updike


Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
-- Richard Cushing

If you want the rainbow, you've got to put up with a little rain.

There's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down.
-- Don Delillo

“For April sobs while these are so glad April weeps while these are so gay,-- Weeps like a tired child who had, Playing with flowers, lost its way.”
Helen Hunt Jackson

“I love the season well When forest glades are teeming with bright forms, Nor dark and many-folded clouds foretell The coming of storms.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Sweet April showers Do bring May flowers.”
Thomas Tusser

“Again the blackbirds sings; the streams Wake, laughing, from their winter dreams, And tremble in the April showers The tassels of the maple flowers.”
John Greenleaf Whittier


 Drip,drip,drop,little April shower
Beating a tune as you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop little April shower
What can compare with your beautiful sound
Beautiful sound
Beautiful sound
Drip, drop, drip, drop
Bambi Little April Showers Lyrics
