    I found two. I think the first one is the one you are looking for.

    April showers bring May flowers,

    That is what they say.

    But if all the showers turned to flowers,

    We’d have quite a colourful day!

    There’d be bluebells and cockleshells,

    Tulips red and green,

    Daffodils and Chinese squill,

    The brightest you’ve ever seen.

    You’d see tiger lilies and water lilies,

    Carnations pink and blue,

    Forget-me-not and small sundrop

    Glistening with the dew.

    We’d have fireweed and milkweed

    And many more different flowers.

    Mexican star and shooting star,

    Falling in the showers.

    And if all the showers turned to flowers

    On that rainy April day,

    Would all the flowers turn to showers

    In the sunny month of May?

    OR

    Life is a splendid thing, for sure

    Or could be, quite a lot,

    For being showered with loving friends

    Is for sure, the nicest thing we've got.

    God's been watering all our hearts

    Of this we do not doubt,

    For in planting only lovely things

    We get the good things out.

    If we've got some love to share

    With a friend all tried and true,

    We can sure feel sort of cozy

    Tucked under God's heaven so blue.

    But sometimes these days it pours with rain

    And we can hit some right raw mud,

    But when we patch it up with loving

    We get to chuckle at the fun.

    Wasn't God so nice to make the cloudy skies

    Come out with all the sunny hours

    Then in rolling out the cutest kids

    He planted all the flowers.

    This place is not all bad yet

    From all the praying on our knees,

    Because then it has a kinder face

    With all the nicest you and me's.

    God gives us all a healthy bite to eat

    And with more than enough to spend,

    Is generous too, to share even

    A little extra to lend.

    These days we find there's way too much

    Of shoving just to get,

    So we need to leave a lot more space

    For loving others yet.

    I do thank our caring Heavenly Father

    Our brightest morning star,

    That He is keeping watch so things

    Will be so blessed, just as they are.

    I want to send you lots of happy thoughts

    And prayers for God to bless you every day,

    With the softest of April showers

    To bring you the loveliest flowers in May.

    The "poem" goes like this:

    April Showers

    April showers bring May flowers,

    That is what they say.

    But if all the showers turned to flowers,

    We’d have quite a colourful day!

    There’d be bluebells and cockleshells,

    Tulips red and green,

    Daffodils and Chinese squill,

    The brightest you’ve ever seen.

    You’d see tiger lilies and water lilies,

    Carnations pink and blue,

    Forget-me-not and small sundrop

    Glistening with the dew.

    We’d have fireweed and milkweed

    And many more different flowers.

    Mexican star and shooting star,

    Falling in the showers.

    And if all the showers turned to flowers

    On that rainy April day,

    Would all the flowers turn to showers

    In the sunny month of May?

    by Karen Chappell

    however...if you're referring to the more famous "song" by Al Jolson, it goes like this:

    Life is not a highway strewn with flowers,

    Still it holds a goodly share of bliss,

    When the sun gives way to April showers,

    Here's a thought that we should never miss:

    Though April showers

    May come your way,

    They bring the flowers

    That bloom in May;

    And if it's raining,

    Have no regrets;

    Because, it isn't raining rain, you know,

    It's raining violets.

    And when you see clouds

    Upon the hill,

    You soon will see crowds

    Of daffodils;

    So keep on looking for the bluebird,

    And listening for his song,

    Whenever April showers come along.

    (repeat)

    hope this is what you were looking for :)
