The following poem was written by Denise Mamakeesic, from Red Lake, Ontario. Denise loves fishing and walking in the woods in her spare time. As a hobby, she makes quilts. Denise is mostly working on her English skills - reading and writing. She practices doing speeches in front of the class and other groups.
Spring is here.
Beautiful flowers - red, yellow and blue.
Spring is nice outside.
Spring is nice for you and me.
You can smell spring.
Spring here, Spring there, Spring everywhere.
I love Spring.
