One thousand pretty flowers proclaim
The arrival of the spring.
One thousand hailstones from above
Come pitter pattering.
One thousand birdsongs resonate
Across a woodland grove,
One thousand golden leaves float down -
They’re Nature’s treasure trove.
One thousand notes of music
From a very boisterous band.
One thousand waves beat tirelessly
Upon the golden sand.
One thousand little minibeasts
Watch all of us each day -
And one thousand shouts now tell me
That the children are at play.
One thousand snowflakes in the sky
Come down from up above:
And one thousand fairies send them
As a special gift of love.
One thousand rain drops splatter
On the windows of your school,
And at playtime you must stay inside -
Now don’t you think that’s cruel?
One thousand silly reasons why
Your homework’s not been done -
But it’s hard to fit in boring things
When having lots of fun.
One thousand poems I’ve written -
Well it’s more than that it’s true -
And each and every one of them
Is a special gift to you.
