This very popular snowdrop poem is the first of a growing series of flower poems (excuse the pun!) which have been beautifully illustrated by Sam Vardy, a keen gardening enthusiast whose accuracy and attention to detail is fantastic.
The poem begins …….
As winter fades above you,
Your crown pokes through the ground;
You tentatively peep and take
A regal look around.
Good morning little snowdrop, so full of hope and grace.
How wonderful to welcome your gentle smiling face.
and continues in the same conversational way as a lovely personification poem, giving the snowdrop character and personal traits. To read the entire poem hover over the image above and click on the magnifying class to enlarge it, then again on the arrows in the top right hand corner to enlarge it fully.
This print looks beautiful as a framed picture (choose an appropriate A4 certificate frame, taking care that none of the text is obscured.) The snowdrop has a lot of personal significance to many people and is a favourite flower to many, so this could make a lovely, personal, yet inexpensive gift for someone.
As an alternative I have also provided this design as a downloadable document for £2.50 which can be printed on any good printer (the image is excellent quality, but will only be as good as the printer!) Multiple copies are allowable via the downloadable option, which would make it an inexpensive way of creating a poetic environment in school with imagery that will help children to engage with and understand personification through the poetry.
