This cheerful daffodil poem is one 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 …….
The spring is here, as demonstrated by the serenade
Of choirs of smiling faces, ceremonially arrayed.
They stand up tall, with arms outstretched;
A welcoming cascade of confidence and blessings….
IT’S THE DAFFODIL PARADE!
Welcome cheerful daffodils, glowing in the sun,
Basking in its glory now that Spring-time has begun.
and continues in the same conversational way as a lovely personification poem, giving the daffodil 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 daffodil is a popular flower because of its association with the arrival of Spring, so this could make a lovely, yet inexpensive, gift for someone who has it as a personal favourite (especially for Mother’s Day because of the appropriate timing.)
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.
