Spring Flowers

Source: Games Without Music For Children

All the children join to form a large ring, and one of the taller girls
stands in the centre to represent 'Spring.' The twelve flowers mentioned
in the verses should be represented by twelve children standing at
intervals in the ring. Before commencing the game, the child who
represents 'Spring' might appropriately repeat the lines of Guessing
Rhyme No. 74, p. 95.

The 'Flowers' step forward from the larger ring as the name of each is
mentioned in the verses, and form a smaller circle round 'Spring.' The
children should join hands to close up the gap which is left by each
'Flower' as it steps forward to join the small circle.

A Daffodil am I,
And I a Daisy small;
A Bluebell I come here,
I'm Buttercup so tall.

The Cowslip should come next,
And then the Violet sweet,
The Snowdrop fair and white,
The Crocus trim and neat.

The starry Celandine,
Anemone, so fair,
The yellow Primrose, sweet,
Lily, with fragrance rare.

The 'Flowers' then join hands and repeat the verse following:--

Whene'er Spring shows her face
The flowers all come again,
We cluster round the 'Spring,'
[All the Flowers bow.]
We follow in her train.
[Flowers turn to right.]

'Spring' marches round inside the larger ring, and the 'Flowers' follow
in order.
