Inspired by Prince's Song, Sometimes it Snows in April for Megan's Contest
Into The April Wind

Natural epitaph, contradiction
Prince's poetic friend, emotion
Attach a haunting memory
Could it be premonition?
Ahead dwells misery
Song recalled life's loss
Snow in April
Where lies spring?
Sleeping...
still

Voice
Singing
Something stirs
Light dormant skies
Captured by a breeze
Bicycle in the wind
Vision life everlasting
Destiny pulled a higher call
No more songs of lingering winter
Gentle rain heralds heaven's lonely spring

This is a Count Down- Count Up Poem, that is in the shape of an hour glass. It has 10 syllables, 9, 8 etc down to 1 then 1, 2 , 3 syllables, etc up again to 10 to make the shape.

It was inspired by one of the last photos of Prince where he was riding a bicycle near his home.

Here are the Prince song lyrics that inspired the poem:

Sometimes it Snows in April

Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war
Just after I'd wiped away his last tear
I guess he's better off than he was before
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
I used to cry for Tracy 'cause he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don't pass you every day
I used to cry for Tracy 'cause I wanted to see him again
But sometimes, sometimes life ain't always the way

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending
And all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year
A time for lovers holding hands in the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
Always cry for love, never cry for pain
He used to say so strong, oh unafraid to die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
No, staring at his picture I realized
No one could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad
Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending
And all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there
I know that he has found another friend
Maybe he's found the answer to all the April snow
Maybe one day I'll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending
But all good things, they say, never last

All good things they say, never last
And love, it isn't love until it's past
