Let’s read the poem aloud 

Seasons 

In winter, the trees seem to sleep 

Tucked in layers of white sheets 

We see their finest clothes in spring 

Bees come to buzz, birds cheep and sing 

When summer’s green leaves start to wilt, 

They fall to make a leafy quilt 

Once more deep snow and sleet are here 

For that is how it goes each year
