Poetry Corner: Springtime Gardens

Springtime is coming O
won’t you join in

It’s time to start planting our
gardens again

Lettuce, tomatoes and peas
in the hull

Now grow some veggies

And eat till you’re full

Springtime is coming

The bees are a swarm

Soon I’ll be saying oh my

It is warm.

Fruit tress are blooming

With apples and pears

When it’s time to pick

Watch out for the bears!
