What’s spring
in spring?
Buds spring!
Leaves spring!
Flowers spring!
Trees spring!
Plants spring!
Grass spring!
Robins sing
in spring!

— Ghazal

2. Spring is Here

Spring is here.
Spring is here.

Hear the birds.
Hear the birds.

They are busy finding.
They are busy finding.

Big fat worms.
Big fat worms.

— Anonymous

3. Goodbye, Winter!

Goodbye, Winter!
Spring is in the air.
Flowers are in bloom.
You see colors everywhere.

Birds build their nest.
In branches way up high.
But out my window, that loud bird.
Woke me up again … sigh!

— Becky Spence

5. Daffodowndilly

She wore her yellow sun bonnet,

She wore her greenest gown;

She turned to the south wind

And curtsied up and down.

She turned to the sunlight

And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbor:

“Winter is dead.”

— A.A Milne


6. Spring

Spring is budding green joy
Fresh breeze and sunshine
Birds singing
Water running
Children sloshing through puddles
On the sidewalk

Spring breathes anticipation

Green shoots sprouting from the earth
Unfurling into flowers
The sweet scent of hyacinths
A baby bird learning how to fly

Spring sweeps the dust out of our corners

As we wake up
As we look and listen
To the promise of a morning sunrise
To joy unfolding
To a glowing new life

— Carole Mullen

7. The Secret

We have a secret, just we three,
The Robin and I and the sweet cherry tree;
The bird told the tree, and the tree told me,
And nobody knows it but just we three.

But of course, the robin knows it best
Because she built the—I shan’t tell the rest;
And laid the four little—something in it—
I’m afraid I shall tell it any minute.

But if the tree and robin don’t peep,
I’ll try my best to find the secret to keep;
But I know when the baby birds fly about
Then the secret will all be out.

— Anonymous

8. Spring is Here

Spring is here
Spring is fun

Spring with kids playing around
Spring is hot
Sometimes rainy
Spring break! With kids so happy

Spring is good
Spring maybe have bad luck
Sometimes people go indoors
Because it is…

So hot! People love spring
So do I!

Spring is here
Spring is very fun
Spring is almost done, so
Say bye-bye!
So now you will see next year
That it will be back to

— Zoe

9. March Wind

The wind is pushing
Against the trees,
He’ll take off your hat
Without asking you “please,”
He rattles the windows
And puffs at a cloud,
Then scoots down the chimney
And laughs aloud.

— Anonymous

10. My Spring Garden

Here is my little garden,
Some seeds I’m going to sow.
Here is my rake to rake the ground,
Here is my handy hoe.

Here is the big round yellow sun;
The sun warms everything.
Here are the rain clouds in the sky;
The birds will start to sing.

Little plants will wake up soon,
And lift their sleepy heads;
Little plants will grow and grow
In their little warm earth beds.

— Anonymous

11. Young Lambs

The spring is coming by many signs;
The trays are up, the hedges broken down.
That fenced the haystack, and the remnant shines
Like some old antique fragment weathered brown.
And where suns peep, in every sheltered place,
The little early buttercups unfold
A glittering star or two—till many trace
The edges of the blackthorn clump in gold.
And then a little lamb bolts up behind
The hill and wags his tail to meet the yoe,
And then another, sheltered from the wind,
Lies all his length as dead – and lets me go
Close bye and never stirs but basking lies,
With legs stretched out as though he could not rise.

— John Clare

12. A Child of Spring

I know a little maiden,
She is very fair and sweet,
As she trips among the grasses
That kiss her dainty feet;
Her arms are full of flowers,
The snow-drops, pure and white,
Timid blue-eyed violets,
And daffodillies are bright.

She loves dear Mother Nature,
And wanders by her side;
She beckons to the birdlings.
That flock from far and wide.
She wakes the baby brooklets,
Soft breezes hear her call;
She tells the little children.
The sweetest tales of all.

Her brow is sometimes clouded,
And she sighs with gentle grace,
Till the sunbeams, daring lovers,
Kiss the teardrops from her face.
Well, we know this dainty maiden,
April is her name;
And we welcome her with gladness,
As the springtime comes again.

— Ellen Robena Field

13. Dandelion Curls

Ah, ha, ha, now! who comes here
Wreathed in flowers of gold and queer
Tiny tangled curls of green
Gayly bobbing in between?

Pretty token of the spring!
Hark! We hear the bluebirds sing.
When we thus see little girls
Decked in dandelion curls.

— Evaleen Stein

14. The Voice of Spring

I am coming, I am coming!
Hark! The honey bee is humming;
See, the lark is soaring high.
In the blue and sunny sky,
And the gnats are on the wing.
Wheeling round in an airy ring.

Listen! New-born lambs are bleating,
And the cawing rooks are meeting.
In the elms—a noisy crowd.
All the birds are singing loudly,
And the first white butterfly.
In the sunshine dances by.

Look around you; look around!
Flowers in all the fields abound,
Every running stream is bright,
All the orchard trees are white,
And each small and waving shoot.
Promises sweet autumn fruit.

— Mary Howitt

15. The Dandelions

Upon a showery night and still,
Without a sound of warning,
A trooper band surprised the hill,
And held it in the morning.

We were not waked by bugle notes
No cheer, our dreams invaded,
And yet, at dawn, their yellow coats
On the green slopes paraded.

We careless folk the deed forgot;
Till one day, idly walking,
We marked the self-same spot
A crowd of veterans talking.

They shook their trembling heads and gray,
With pride and noiseless laughter,
When well-a-day! They blew away,
And ne’er were heard of after.

— Helen Gray Cone

16. Song: Spring

When daisies pied and violets blue,
And lady-smocks all silver-white,
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue.
Do paint the meadows with delight,
The cuckoo then, on every tree,
Mocks married men, for thus sings he:
Cuckoo, cuckoo!’ O word of fear,
Unpleasing to a married ear.

When shepherds pipe on oaten straws,
And merry larks are plowmen’s clocks,
When turtles tread, and rooks, and daw,
And maidens bleach their summer smocks,
The cuckoo then, on every tree,
Mocks married men, for thus sings he:
Cuckoo, cuckoo!’ O word of fear,
Unpleasing to a married ear.

William Shakespeare

17. Dear Grif

Dear Grif,
Here is a whiff
Of beautiful spring flowers;
The big red rose
It is for your nose,
As toward the sky, it towers.

Oh, do not frown
Upon this crown
Of green, pink, and blue geranium
But think of me
When this you see,
And put it on your cranium.”

Louisa May Alcott

18. The Wind

I saw you toss the kites on high
And blow the birds about the sky;
And all around, I heard you pass,
Like ladies’ skirts across the grass–
O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O wind that sings so loud a song!

I saw the different things you did,
But always you yourself you hid.
I felt you push; I heard you call,
I could not see yourself at all–
O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O wind that sings so loud a song!

O you that are so strong and cold,
O blower, are you young or old?
Are you a beast of field and tree,
Or just a stronger child than me?
O wind, a-blowing all day long,
O wind that sings so loud a song!

– Robert Louis Stevenson

19. Very Early Spring

The fields are snowbound no longer;
There are little blue lakes and flags of tenderest green.
The snow has been caught up in the sky–
So many white clouds–and the blue of the sky is cold.
Now the sun walks in the forest,
He touches the bows and stems with his golden fingers;
They shiver and wake from slumber.
Over the barren branches, he shakes his yellow curls.
Yet is the forest full of the sound of tears….
A wind dances over the fields.
Shrill and clear the sound of her waking laughter,
Yet the little blue lakes tremble
And the flags of tenderest green bend and quiver.

20. Showery Time

The April raindrops tinkle.
In cuckoo-cups of gold,
And warm south winds unwrinkle
The buds the peach boughs hold.

In countless fluted creases
The little elm leaves show,
While white as carded fleeces
The dogwood blossoms blow.

A rosy robe is wrapping
The early red-bud trees;
But still, the haws are napping,
Nor heed the honeybees.

And still in lazy sleeping
The apple buds are bound,
But tulip tips are peeping
From out the garden ground.

And yonder, gayly swinging
Upon the turning vane,
A robin redbreast singing
Makes merry at the rain!

– Evaleen Stein
