04/03/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Little April Shower

“...then April came, that daybreak of summer, fresh like every dawn, gay like every childhood;
weeping a little sometimes like the infant that it is. Nature in this month has charming gleams
which pass from the sky, the clouds, the trees, the fields and the flowers, into the heart of man.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables, 1862
(26 Feb 1802 - 22 May 1885)

Frank Churchill (20 Oct 1901 - 14 May 1942)

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Drip, drip, drop
When the sky is cloudy
Your pretty music
Can brighten the day

Drip, drip, drop
When the sun says howdy
You say goodbye right away

Drip, drip drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
Ev'rywhere that you fall

Drip, drip drop
Little April shower
I'm getting wet
And I don't care at all

Drip, drop, drip, drop
I'll never be afraid
Of a good little
Gay little
April serenade
