Claire Embraces Spring - Poem by Rannet Hanson
Claire Embraces spring Rannet Hanson 2016
Claire loves to go outside and play.
This was the first chance she had all day.
She thought of the slide that she loves,
and asked her Mom for her coat and gloves.
But her heavy winter coat was gone,
A light jacket was what she put on.
Happily they skipped to the play ground.
Signs of spring were what they found.
They watched a robin building a nest,
Claire liked it's orange feathered breast.
Other birds were starting to sing,
and the grass was now turning green.
There were flowers of bright yellow and red,
called tulips, that's what Claire's Mom said.
This day was so exciting, She loved the warm air
and the feel of the gentle breeze in her hair.
Other children were already playing in the park,
People walked their dogs, Claire heard them bark.
With a joyous glee, she ran to the slide,
climbed to the top, then enjoyed the ride.
She thought that she would never tire of this,
sliding down the slide gave her such bliss.
Finally Claire tried the swings then the jungle gym,
next the Merry-Go-Round where she took a spin.
Claire knew it was time to go home when it got dark,
She was getting hungry, it was time to leave the park.
Walking home, Claire asked for flowers to grow,
Maybe some purple, orange, red and yellow.
Claire's Mom laughed because loving spring was contagious.
The warm weather made them both feel outrageous
Her Mom said 'We can plant flowers tomorrow,
we need to get out our tools, our rake and our hoe.
Then we will work the soil and make a nice flower bed,
and plant flowers that are orange, purple yellow and red.'
That night when she went to sleep, all of Claire's dreams
Were full of the fun and joy that
