April is Daffodil Month, which is the Canadian Cancer Society ‘s national fundraising campaign for the fight against cancer.
The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer.
In my Toronto neighbourhood, there is a patch of daffodils in our local park to remember those who passed because of cancer, to celebrate cancer survivors, and to give courage to those who are fighting cancer at present.
Looking out the window
and what do I see?
A beautiful snowy winter day
But isn’t it supposed to be spring?
When flowers bloom
and robins sing?
When we put on rubber boots
and play in the pouring rain?
Mother Nature, what’s happening?
Don’t wanna be disrespecful
’cause ’tis a beautiful day after all
But calendar shows it is April
It is supposed to be spring.
Well, isn’t it?
