April's Lambs
written by William Henry Davies
From "The Song of Life", 1920 Link to further information

Though I was born in April's prime,
  With many another lamb,
Yet, thinking now of all my years,
  What am I but a tough old ram?'

'No woman thinks of years,' said she,
  'Or any tough old rams,
When she can hear a voice that bleats
  As tenderly as any lamb's.'
