What Can You Find?

Listen to Julie ...
It’s everywhere,
it looks different outside,
today brings a new flower.
Can you see it?

Shivering winter has left,
spring comes running
with so many new sounds.
Can you hear them?

Daffodils, hedgehogs
lambs, snowdrops,
they’re all awake.
Have you seen one?

It’s everywhere,
spring has arrived,
the sky is brighter.
What can you find?
