Recipe for Spring

Pic 1

A charming poem about the "ingredients" that make up the season of Spring. Check out our Fun Stuff page for great activities to go with this poem.





Take:

One brave snowdrop
Peeping through the snow.
Two yellow daffodils
As they start to grow.

Add:

A meadow full of lambs
As they gambol and they run
And a stream full of tadpoles
Wriggling in the sun.

Sprinkle:

A handful of blossom
As it billows from a tree
And the tiniest of ducklings
You can see.

Mix:

Them together
On a bright March day
With a teaspoon of wind
And a little cloud of grey.

Place:

Them gently
To warm in the sun
Till springtime arrives
And winter has gone!
