It is a good opportunity to share great poems with our school friends to celebrate springtime. SPRING DAY
I is for INSECTS that flit through the air, And the grasshoppers, beetles, and ants everywhere. N is for NOISES I hear when I wake, The chirping of birds and the laughs children make. G is for GROWTH that I see around me. The plants and the animals- SPRING is lovely! Unknown S is for SUNSHINE to brighten the spring, Warming the water, the earth, everything! P is for POSIES with colors so bright- Reds, yellows, purples, Oh! what a sight! R is for RAINDROPS that splash all about, Wetting the earth so that new life can sprout.
