Nyt on kevät
Now is spring

Lumi sulaa
Snow is melting

Linnut laulavat
Birds are singing

Aurinko laskee myöhään ja nousee aikaisin
Sun sets late and rises early

Ihanaa, kun ei ole enää kylmä
It is lovely that it is not cold anymore 

Oletko ollut kävelyllä jokirannassa? Have you been walking by the river?

Oletko syönyt jo jäätelöä?
Have you eaten ice cream yet?

Hyvää kevään jatkoa!
Have a nice spring!
