Spring Forward

Skip like a new-born goat

Run like a little colt

Jump like a baby frog

Leap like a fresh cricket

Swim like a tiny tadpole

Bloom like a flower

Sway like the wind

It’s March, time to go

Swish, swish!

On My Birthday

Posted March 24, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

March, it’s my favorite month
Of the whole year
Because it’s my birthday
But this month it keeps
On raining too much
And if it keeps on raining
Until my birthday
It will ruin my day
But I like it
Because I see a lot of flowers
That my mom plants
In the heart shaped garden
She plants many kinds of flowers
Like roses, tulips, and many more
But the ones I love the most
Are the white lilies.
She says that they are mine
A gift from her to me
On my birthday.
