“April Showers” is a song written in 1921 by Louis Silvers and B.G. De Sylva. Al Jolson popularized the tune in the 1921 musical “Bombo”. It became a staple of his and many other artists through the years.
The song contains these popular words:
Though April showers may come your way,
They bring the flowers that bloom in May.
Well, if you live in Indiana you certainly can appreciate the lyrics in this tune. We’ve had a large amount of rain in April and it has continued in the early part of May.
There’s a saying in Indiana; “If you don’t like the weather just wait a few hours and it will change.” That’s very true.
But inevitably May does come and the flowers bloom and you see beautiful landscapes like the one I have pictured above.
Indiana is one of the most beautiful places in the world in the spring because of the abundant rain we get in April. Grass is green. Flowers are in full bloom.
The song, “April Showers” like many songs of that era present a contrast that is important to understand. In fact, the song’s first stanza says, “Here is the point you should never miss…”
The point of course is an enduring one; that beauty only comes after the hard work. We reap what we sow. That difficult times will eventually be resolved and good times will come.
This is an important point for financial and tax planning as well.
If you want the big refund and the lowered taxes that comes with it, you need to do some planning. The planning is the “showers”. Planning can be cumbersome. It can be slow to implement. It can be drudgery.
