Spring has sprung poem

SHERRIBNC(NC/7)March 10, 2005

My grandmother said she learned this poem in grade school.

She taught it to me as a child. I have tried to do some research on the poem but have not had any luck.

Has anyone ever heard this?

"Spring has sprung!", said the bumble bee.

"How do you know?", said the old oak tree.

"I just saw a daffodil blooming on a windy hill!"

Grandmother is 77 now and in the hospital.

We have been very worried about her,

but my brother and I have had a good laugh, we both carried daffodils to her and recited her poem.

Hi there! Was also searching for "Spring is Sprung" poems

My one comes from my father who used to recite

Spring is sprung, the grass is rise
I wonder where the birdies is!

Maybe there is no original poem, just fun with words going back through the generations?

regards

David

Redoak - my dad used to recite that one too. I just did a quick google on it and found nothing except many other people wondering where it came from. It's from the 50's according to one "expert".

The grass is ris, though, or riz, not rise, in my memory and in the other discussions of this lovely poem.

I thought everyone had heard this version:

Spring has sprung, Fall has fell
Winter is here and it's colder than....
Usual

Spring has sprung;
The grass has ris.
I wonder where
The birdie is?

There he is
In the sky.
He dropped some
Whitewash in my eye!

I am no sissy;
I won't cry.
I'm just glad
The cows can't fly!

I also learned this from my Parents
The grass is riz
I wonder where the birdie is
The bird is on the wing
But thats absurd,
The wing is on the Bird

I remember this as a song from 40s or 50s. From memory, not complete, but I can sing it:

Oh, spring has sprung, the grass is riz,
wonder where the flowers is, wonder where that man of mine has went.
The boids are choiping in the trees, the wind is blowing as it please, and everyone's as happy as can be, except for me, I am not free.
Oh, spring has sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where the flowers is, I wonder where that man of mine has went.
