15 Lovely Spring Poems For Kids

Spring is the time when Mother Earth is rejuvenating. The flowers bloom and trees grow new leaves. The ice melts and ground thaws to bid adieu to chilling winters and say hello to warm summers. The earth is renewed with the energy from the sun. Soon, the outdoors will be covered with a green blanket, birds will chirp and butterflies will migrate. There are special springtime poems and songs to describe the beauty of the season.

Poems are important to help understand the world around us and appreciate little things in life, promote reading and language skills. Kids can recite them in a group with easy body movements to increase oxygen and blood flow, promote physical health, encourage group participation, and have a positive effect on the mental well-being of the children.

1. Our Springtime Garden

“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.”


2. The Itsy Bitsy Spider

“The itsy, bitsy spider, climbed up the water spout.

Down came the rain and washed the spider out.

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain,

So, the itsy, bitsy spider went up the spout again.”


3. Spring is Here

“Spring is here,

Spring is here.

Hear the birds,

Hear the birds.

They are busy finding,

They are busy finding.

Big fat worms,

Big fat worms.”


4. I Love the Flowers

“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.”


5. Buttercups and Daisies

“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

6. It is Springtime

“Leaves are growing on the trees,

on the trees, on the trees.

Leaves are growing on the trees,

it is springtime.

All the grass is turning green,

See the birds build their nests,

Watch the flowers start to grow.”


7. March Winds

“March wind is a jolly fellow;

He likes to joke and play.

He turns umbrellas inside out,

And blows men’s hats away.

He calls the pussy willows

And whispers in each ear,

Wake up you lazy little seeds,

Don’t you know that spring is here?”


8. A Little Seed

“A little seed for me to sow,

A little seed to make it grow.

A little hole, a little pat,

A little wish and that is that.

A little sun, a little shower,

A little while,

And then a flower!”


9. Spring is Coming

“Spring is coming,

Spring is coming.

How do you think I know?

I see a flower blooming,

I know it must be so.

Spring is coming,

Spring is coming,

How do you think I know?

I see a blossom on the tree,

I know it must be so.”


10. My Spring Garden

“Here is my little garden,

Some seeds I’m going to sow.

Here is my rake to rake the ground,

Here is my handy hoe.

Here is the big, round yellow sun,

The sun warms everything.

Here are the rain clouds in the sky,

The birds will start to sing.

Little plants will wake up soon,

And lift their sleepy heads,

Little plants will grow and grow

In their little, warm earth beds.”

11. Hoppity Frog

“Hoppity Frog,

Jump on the log,

And jump off the other side,

Hoppity Frog.”


12. April

“April is a rainbow month,

Of sudden springtime showers.

Bright with golden daffodils

And lots of pretty flowers.”


13. Signs of Spring

“Do you see a sign of spring,

A sign of spring, a sign of spring?

Do you see a sign of spring?

Tell us what you see.”


14. The Parade

“I like the parade of flowers,

That marches by the year.

The parade begins in spring,

And ends when winter is near.

The pretty flowers pass waving,

Crocus, tulips and rose.

And I keep waving back,

Until the last flower goes.”


15. Season Song

“It is springtime,

It is springtime,

Winter’s gone,

Winter’s gone.

Summertime is coming,

Summertime is coming,

It won’t be long,

It won’t be long.”
