Child's Song In Spring Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


The Silver Birch is a dainty ladyA
She wears a satin gownB
The elm tree makes the old churchyard shadyA
She will not live in townB
The English oak is a sturdy fellowC
He gets his green coat lateD
The willow is smart in a suit of yellowC
While brown the beech trees waitD
Such a gay green gown God gives the larchesE
As green as he is goodF
The hazels hold up their arms for archesE
When spring rides through the woodF
The chestnut s proud and the lilac s prettyA
The poplar s gentle and tallG
But the plane tree s kind to the poor dull cityA
I love him best of allG

Jean (nee) Bray: A long, long time ago, in the 1930s, at Luton, I had to learn this poem by heart - as one did in those days at school. It stuck with me, and at 90, my well-worn memory recalled it as I looked up my garden, and watched the silver birch, with leaves falling. It is a lovely sight.
