Many people view spring as a season of tremendous beauty, which it is, though people never take the time to thank the creator for the majesty he has put into our world.

In Spring into writing, part 1, we dipped our toes into some fresh descriptive writing and journaling ideas. Today, in honor of the season, let’s play around with these whimsical spring poetry ideas!

Spring Acrostic Poems

Who says poems have to rhyme? Using the letters in the word SPRING, create an acrostic poem about the season. A line can be a single word, a phrase or partial thought, or a complete sentence.

The first poem makes use of simple descriptive phrases. Notice the repeated letters and sounds? Not only is this an acrostic, it’s alliterated too!

S unny skies
P lanting peppers
R omping like rabbits
I mpatiens and irises
N ew nests
G listening, green, and glorious!

S parrows twitter nearby as I
P ress marigold seeds into the rich brown earth.
R eveling in the moment,
I  wriggle my bare toes in the warm soil,
N ot wanting to go inside, even for supper.
G uess I have spring fever…

Spring Color Poems

Here’s a fantastic spring poetry idea for younger children.

Pick your favorite spring color—pink, green, purple, yellow, or blue, for example—and use this template and plenty of descriptive words to create a poem (examples in parentheses).

Watch out for vague, dull, or repeated words that can steal life from a child’s writing. Poetry depends on strong word choices to express a thought, so make each one count!

White is … ____ (frolicking lambs)
