Showers of love

This is a lovely poem by Thomas Campion. It is perfect for April with its sudden showers that instead of spoiling our fun in the sun are actually making plants and flowers grow and blossom. Just like the effect that love has on us.

Deeds from love, and words, that flow
Foster like kind April showers
In the warm sun all things grow,
Wholesome fruits and pleasant flowers,
All so thrive his gentle rays
Whereon human love displays.
