The sun is warm the wind is chill, you know it is with an April day.

When the sun is out and the wind is still, you're one month on in the middle of May.

But if you so much as dare to speak, a cloud come over the sunlit arch.

And the wind comes off a frozen peak, you're two months back in the middle of March.
