Spring

Yellow is a bright, sunny day,
Baby ducks come out to play.
Green is full of life in spring.
A joyous tune echoes
From every tree as yellow birds sing
Their song of life.
Brightly colored daffodils
Pop open their lively petals.
Their noses protrude, smelling the fresh scent
Of newly mowed grass.
Yellow canaries chirp in the sun,
Flying from budded branch to budded branch,
Enjoying the green scene before them.
Yellow monarchs flutter near leaves of green.
Soft breezes blow over the pond
Where green frogs play in the warm sun all day.
Children sell yellow lemonade,
Collecting dollars, green in their pockets.
Yellow bees buzz,
And green grasshoppers hop about,
While I dance around joyfully
To celebrate the season.
My yellow hair glows in the sunlight;
My green eyes feast upon the day.
Joy and beauty fill the air-
Greens and yellows everywhere.

-L.M. Nelson

Spring is in the Air

Spring is my favorite season, mainly because I love flowers and gardening. I grow vegetables, herbs, and have many kinds of flowers in my yard. In Texas, the wildflowers start to bloom.

The Mountain Laurel’s purple blossoms and the Texas Redbud’s pretty pink buds decorate the landscape.

My own garden flourishes with roses, irises, daisies, marigolds, and other colorful flowers.

Gladiolus, tulips, daffodils, and lillies start to pop out of the ground, and my vegetables begin to sprout. Bushes bud, fragrant herbs grow, and the grass turns green. Crepe Myrtles sprout leaves and begin to flower. Spring is a beautiful time of year when nature comes back to life.

Happy spring, everyone! 🌞🌺🌻🌹🌷🌸

Yellow is a bright sunny day,

Little baby ducks at play.

Green is full of life in spring.

A joyous tune echoes

From every tree as yellow birds sing

Their song of life.

Brightly colored yellow daffodils

Pop open their lively petals.

Their noses protrude, smelling the fresh scent

Of the newly mowed green grass.

Yellow canaries chirp in the sun,

Flying from budded branch to budded branch,

Enjoying the green scene before them.

Yellow monarch butterflies

Flutter by the leaves of green

Soft breezes blow over the pond

Where the green frogs play

In the warm sun all day.

Children sell yellow lemonade

Collecting dollars, green in their pockets.

Yellow bees buzz, buzz,

Green grasshoppers hop about,

While I dance around joyfully

To celebrate the season.

My yellow hair glows in the sunlight;

My green eyes feast upon the day.

Joy and beauty fill the air-

Greens and yellows everywhere.
