The clocks have ‘sprung’ forward and the days are getting longer. With early morning birdsong and fragrant blossoms on the trees, I’m celebrating the arrival of Spring with this poem written for children. The author is unknown, but I think it is lovely in its simple expression of the joy for this long-awaited season.
