When I see a robin I know that spring is coming.

Robin means spring

by Randa Dayle

"Springtime is coming!"
Robin Redbreast is singing--
on my lawn jumping!

Springtime is coming!
The green grasses are showing--
soon I'll be mowing!

Springtime is coming!
Pretty tulips are budding--
soon we'll hear buzzing!!


5-7-5 Springtime Trio writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a 'chain' of THREE 5-7-5 poems that address three different aspects of the budding Spring season. They can be three things that are linked by a common 'thread' or they can be totally unrelated items that only have 'Springtime' in common. No other requirements except that each of your 'stanzas' (each 5-7-5) must follow the format of:

first line - 5 syllables
second line - 7 syllables
third line - 5 syllables

Have fun! Be creative! Be colorful! But most of all, make us want to vote for yours! :) ;)


When the robins come back, then spring is really in the air.
