April's Plaything (Rispetto)--By Emile Pinet--Canada

April's Plaything (Rispetto)

Yesterday, I saw my first robin of spring
and it instantly brought a smile to my heart.
Today, I heard that red breasted robin sing
a happy tune, as winter doldrums depart.
Tomorrow, showers will be April's plaything
giving nature a refreshing drink to start.
For as our wobbly world spins on its axis
it unlocks seasons and gives my heart access.

Emile Pinet was born in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada. Many of his poems reflect the uniqueness of nature, which he loves, and his poetic observations of life in general. Emile has been writing poems since he was about 35 years old (now 67). He decided to write down his ideas and express himself through his poetry.


  1. How beautiful Emile! Thank you! I just read Tom's well described winter scene and felt chilly afterward. So glad to read your warm description of Spring that took me out of the "winter doldrums". I feel the words I read. Isn't that crazy. Maybe that is why I love to write; being able to put on paper what I feel is therapeutic.
    Sincerely, Charlene
