Spring Awakening by Miriam Green

Standard

Spring is the joy
Of the birds singing,
Raindrops trickling down the gum trees.
When spring is here I am alive,
Everything is rushing to hatch,
All animals,
All flowers,
Now fresh and fragrant.
Everything about spring is airy and new,
Flowing freely, fragile, but strong.
Nothing can break the happiness in spring,
The energy, the laughter, the joy.
Spring is the inspiration for artists,
Fine colours of the rainbow are
The most beautiful to me.
I love spring, the flowers and the rainbow,
the long green grass swaying gently
With the wind , the wind.

Spring Awakening by Hannah Biber

Standard

Assonance

Thinking and linking
Raking and baking
Tall and small
Take and make
Puffing and huffing
Pushing and pulling
Feeding and breeding
Needing and leaning
Walking and talking
Ranting and panting
Roughing and buffing
This is life in the park.

Spring Awakening by Lily Baker

Standard

Spring is the magical time

When the rainbow lorikeets hum and the honey suckles

Blossom,

When I actively bounce down the sand dunes

And onto the pea green grass,

The waratahs and the wattles bloom,

And my heart opens to the riot of spring.

I love this time when everything comes to life,

Nature triumphs in the trees, swaying freely in the wind,

Stealing my train of thought

And making my imagination run wild.

I am inspired by this heavenly kingdom,

The tranquillity of dew droplets falling,

Slowly

The mastery of the rain.

I feel connected.

Tree sap trickles down the bark of native gum trees

I examine this , calmly, curiously.

Sometimes the wind whispers to me at dusk

Giving me confidence within my body

I promise

I will always make the most of springtime.

Spring Awakening by Maddy Van Dam

Standard

Spring is a fresh beginning,
New growth,
Flowers open up,
Colours bloom,
Spring is when the wattle goes
On its travels.
It is natural when the trickling water
Can sometimes carry the flower petals.
Spring is when the breeze brings the
buzz and the brightness,
The smell of natural winds is all
Around,
Sun glitters on the water.
