Pink Tulips


By Josie Whitehead

Tulips in Spring

The tulips, in their gorgeous gowns,

Are the centrepiece of parks and towns.

     Displayed in gardens every spring,

     What cheerfulness to all they bring.


With colourful cups upon their heads

They brighten many springtime beds.

      In April showers, displayed with pride,

      They take this weather in their stride.


The sun, which shines upon these flowers,

Increases with day’s lengthening hours

     And in May the tulips say goodbye,

     As swallows swoop across our sky.
