Today is Day 20 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”
Today is also the first day of spring. Plants are already starting to poke through in our garden and I’ve seen the first robin as well. It seems too early but I’ll take it.
Here is a poem to welcome spring – a form I used often with my students.
Hello Spring, Goodbye winter
Hello to rain and rainbows
Goodbye to snow and blizzards
Hello to lawnmowers and rakes
Goodbye to snowblowers and shovels
Hello to longer days
Goodbye to longer nights
Hello to budding flowers
Goodbye to bare trees
Hello to warmer weather
Goodbye to freezing temperatures
Hello to signs of new life
Goodbye to dead leaves and plants
