Slice of Life #30 – Jump for Spring!

Standard

Spring has sprung and my little ones are jumping to it.

Their inner motors are revving like bumblebees in the garden,

Primed to burst with exuberance like the tulips and daffodils.

Contented days of Lego building and slow, careful coloring

Replaced by crashing Matchbox cars, soaring paper airplanes,

Recess and movement is no longer for trying to warm up

Potential energy pours full force into all out kinetic movement.

Up the steps, down the slide, over the monkey bars,

Through the tunnel, jump on the stump, jump over the stump,

Jump, JUmp,JUMp, JUMP, JUMP!!

Spring has sprung and my little ones are jumping to it.

  1. Your poem literally buzzed with movement. I could feel and picture your little ones moving with your words! Awesome! And, from one teacher to another, I wish you luck…and a soon summer.
