What a pretty dress I wear...

What a pretty dress I wear...
Fresh and green, bedecked with shades of yellow and lilac everywhere.
Dainty white flowers also abound,
Having pushed through icy ground!
Lambs skip and run and play,
Other baby animals are born each day.
Nests are built and filled,
Eggs are hatched and birdsongs are trilled!

Another dress I wear...
Myriad flowers of rainbow colours everywhere.
Mists of tulle adorn shoulder and hem,
Every morning and at the long day's amen.
Gold and silver sparkles glisten and glint,
From the sun, or moon's, tint.
Part of my dress, a pretty blue,
Edged with creamy lace - a pattern of sandcastles built by me and you!

This dress I wear...
Russet red, gold and amber.
Fruit in bunches here and there,
Golden corn gathered with care.
More tulle at morn and night,
Shimmering gold or silver in the light.
Russet silk is overlaid,
With spangled silk from cobwebs made!

The last - the finest one of all - is shimmering white,
With silver spangled lace over all.
Cobwebs frosted with diamonds bright,
Strung like necklaces in the sun, or moonlight.
Berries red give a splash of colour,
The secret of my wardrobe can you discover?
