Seasonal Poems
by Melanie Mazurek

Snow, Snow
Snow, snow, melt away
Come again some January
Now it's spring
And the birds want to stay.

Spring, Spring
Spring, spring, go away.
Come again some cool March day.
Now it's summer
In the lake we will play.

Summer, Summer
Summer, summer, go away
See you in the month after May
Now it's fall
In the leaves we will play.

Fall, Fall
Leaves, leaves, blow away
Come again some September day.
Winter's here
In the snow we will play.
