2. Winter is Dead —Anonymous

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.

3. Warming March —Anonymous

Wondrously February withdraws to

warm March with a golden glow

from Spring’s shining sun sent

down to lead the way

for April’s soothing showers

soon to bring fragrant flowers

and dance on May’s blossoming bounty.

4. Spring, Almost —Anonymous

Almost Spring poem
Source: @teacherspayteachers.com

The sunshine gleams so bright and warm,

The sky is blue and clear.

I run outdoors without a coat,

And spring is almost here.

Then before I know it,

Small clouds have blown together,

Till the sun just can’t get through them,

And again, it’s mitten weather.

5. It’s Springtime —Anonymous

A small green frog

On a big brown log;

A black and yellow bee

In a little green tree;

A red and yellow snake

By a blue-green lake,

All sat and listened

To red bird sing,

“Wake up, everybody,

It’s spring! It’s spring!”

6. Our Spring Garden —Anonymous

“What a lovely time of year,

Time of year, time of year,

What a lovely time of year,

In our springtime garden.

See the flowers swing and sway,

Swing and sway, swing and sway,

See the flowers swing and sway,

In our springtime garden.”

Buttercups and daisies poem

“Buttercups and daisies,

Oh, the pretty flowers,

Coming here the springtime,

To tell of sunny hours.

While the trees are leafless,

While the fields are bare,

Buttercups and daisies,

Spring up here and there.”

~Mary Howitt

8. I Love Flowers—Anonymous

I love flowers.

I love the budding trees.

I love the chirping birds.

I love the buzzing bees.

I love the Springtime,

When the sun is warm and bright.

9. The spring song

Frogs croak

Rains soak

Chicks peep

Crickets leap

Bees hum

Robins come

Birds sing

It’s spring!

10. The Wind is Pushing—Anonymous

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.

Down in a green and shady bed

A modest violet grew;

Its stalk was bent, it hung its head,

As if to hide from view.

And yet it was a lovely flower,

No colors bright and fair;

It might have graced a rosy bower,

Instead of hiding there.

Out popped another one, then there were four.

Four little daffodils were glad to be alive,

Out popped another one, then there were five.

They danced in the breeze in green satin gowns.

Dig a small hole, dig a small hole.

Put the seed in, put the seed in.

Cover, cover! Cover, cover!

Pour on water, pour on water.

It is growing, it is growing.

See a seedling, see a seedling.

Sun and water, sun and water.

Flowers blooming, flowers blooming.

Fruits are growing, fruits are rowing.

New seeds! New seeds!

Starts again and starts again.

Early Spring Poem
Source: @mournemanororganics.org.uk

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,

The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;

And ’tis my faith that every flower

Enjoys the air it breathes. 

The birds around me hopped and played,

Their thoughts I cannot measure

But the least motion which they made

It seemed a thrill of pleasure

8. Dear Grif —Louisa May Alcott

Dear Grif poem
Source: @allpoetry.com

Dear Grif,

Here is a whiff

Of beautiful spring flowers;

The big red rose

Is for your nose,

As toward the sky, it towers.

Oh, do not frown

Upon this crown

Of green pinks and blue geranium

But think of me

When this you see,

And put it on your cranium.”

4. Spring —William Shakespeare

Spring Poem
Source: @internetpoem.com

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, 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 daws,

And maidens bleach their summer smocks,

The cuckoo then, on every tree,

Mocks married men, for thus sings he:

‘Cuckoo!

Cuckoo, cuckoo!’ O word of fear,

Unpleasing to a married ear.

5. The Power of Recycling—Anonymous

We recycle what we use,

separate things,

and you should, too!

Glass and paper, plastic and tin,

all go in your recycling bin.

We must start now.

We can’t wait.

Quick, or it will be too late!

6. Mud—Anonymous

Mud is very nice to feel

All squishy-squash between the toes!

I’d rather wade in wiggly mud

Than smell a yellow rose.

Nobody else but the rosebush knows

How nice mud feels

Between the toes.

Then scoots down the chimney

And laughs aloud.

Boats sail on the rivers poem
Source: @youtube.com 

Boats sail on the rivers,

And ships sail on the seas;

But clouds that sail across the sky

Are prettier far than these.

There are bridges on the rivers,

As pretty as you please;

But the bow that bridges heaven,

And overtops the trees,

And builds a road from earth to sky,

Is prettier far than these.
