Rhyme or Poem for each month

I am going to do Calendar notebooks this year and I have found some great ideas online, however one mentioned doing a poem for each month (in addition to the one with all of the months) however, nothing was listed for these poems. My questions (finally) is does anybody know where I can find and print poems or rhymes for each month. Thanks!

Poetry books. What specific poetry are you looking for? Poems that go with a theme, poems that are about a month, poems that K kids will love, poems that focus on phonics?

My CT did this in third grade. She had various poems she had collected over the years. I remember New Kid On the Block by Jack Prelutzky for september, a Halloween one that was about a recipe for some kind of witches brew, which they then made on Halloween using fun ingredients, and The Night Before Christmas for December. We would recite them together every morning. Lots of fun!

I have a really good poem book that I get most of my poems from. I remember reading it on the bus with my grandfather when I was about 5 or 6. It's called the Random House Book of Children's' Poetry. It has some monthly and seasonal poems and is a great resource, though that's not its main purpose.

Someone I know who taught first grade did the poem each month from the book "Chicken Soup with Rice". It was cute

I do have a set that I use (and each month the tunes varies between 4 popular children's songs) but the lyrics are currently locked in my classroom for the summer and my brain must be on vacation too b/c I can't remember them all. I typed out the ones I remember and I did a little Google searching and I also included one similar to mine. Hopefully this is what you're looking for.
January (are you sleeping)
January, January
The first month of the year, the first month of the year.
Some will get some snowflakes, some will get some raindrops.
2011 is here, 2011 is here.

February (Skip to my Lou)
February now is here,
February now is here,
February now is here,
the shortest month of the year.

February 2nd is Groundhog's day (repeat 3x)
Will he see his shadow?

February 14th is Valentines day (repeat 3x)
Send your valentines that day.

March (The Farmer in the Dell)
The month of March is here,
and spring is in the air.
Birds will sing and flowers will bloom.
Now that March is here.

April (Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

April showers bring May flowers.
April now is here.

May (Skip to My Lou)
May, May the month of May.
Flowers Blooming every day.
Summertime is on the way.
This is now the month of May.

June (Skip to My Lou)
June, June the month of June.
School will be over soon.
We'll laugh, and skip and sing a tune.
This is now the month of June.

August (are you sleeping?)
August is here, August is here.
School's begun, school's begun.
We'll make lots of friends, we'll make lots of friends.
August is here, August is here.

November (are you sleeping)
Cool November, cool November
Now is here, how is here.
Learn about the Indians, learn about the Pilgrims.
