THE VEGETABLE PLOT
Brussel sprouts sprout on the stems Cauliflowers flower as white gems Cabbage green grow with rain, Cabbage white purity to gain. Curly kale swirl As they curl and twirl. Broccoli florets solid and tight With graceful stems as they catch the light Green beans grow as they cling, Pea pods swell sweetness to bring. Lettuce, let us chew the cud. Asparagus squeeze through the mud. Marrow's stretch on the ground. Melons rolling round and round. With aching muscles and hearts lain bare Providing food so healthy with tender care. Gardeners work and dig the soil As onwards they sweat and toil.
