April Showers
April showers bring May flowers,
That is what they say.
But if all the showers turned to flowers,
We’d have quite a colourful day! There’d be bluebells and cockleshells,
Tulips red and green,
Daffodils and Chinese squill,
The brightest you’ve ever seen. You’d see tiger lilies and water lilies,
Carnations pink and blue,
Forget-me-not and small sundrop
Glistening with the dew. We’d have fireweed and milkweed
And many more different flowers.
Mexican star and shooting star,
Falling in the showers. And if all the showers turned to flowers
On that rainy April day,
Would all the flowers turn to showers
In the sunny month of May?

“The naked earth is warm with Spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun’s kiss glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze.”

Last but definately not least, Goddard is excited to celebrate our Earth and promote a healthier Earth for future generations to come as we kick off “Root For Earth” on Monday, April 22nd. We will start the week by flipping the switch with nearly 400 Goddard Schools nation wide. We will turn off all non-essential lighting for one hour. The children will also participate in fun environmental learning activities throughout the week to teach them about our earth and how to take care of it. Stop by and “Root For Earth” with us today!
