    Laughing Rose
    by William Henry Davies (1871-1940)

    If I were gusty April now,
    How I would blow at laughing Rose;
    I'd make her ribbons slip their knots,
    And all her hair come loose.

    If I were merry April now,
    How I would pelt her cheeks with showers;
    I'd make carnations, rich and warm,
    Of her vermillion flowers.

    Since she will laugh in April's face
    No matter how he rains or blows —
    Then O that I wild April were,
    To play with laughing Rose.
