April Fool!
April 1990

“April Fool!” Friend, Apr. 1990, 39

April Fool!

I saw a cowslip through the fence,

A horsefly in the store.

I saw a boardwalk up the street,

A doorstop by a door.

I saw a millrace up the road,

A daybreak through the gloom.

I saw a nightfall on the lawn,

And a clock run in the room.

I saw a peanut stand up high,

A cracker box in town,

A bedspring at the garden gate,

An inkstand on the ground.

You don’t believe all this, do you?

For not a single thing is true!
