Poem: Fresh Feast

Fresh Feast

The bounties of summer are here,
Buy sweet tender corn by the ear,

Carrots as bright as the afternoon sun,
Juicy red grapes – second to none,

Lettuce as crisp and moist as the dew,
Spinach so green it beckons to you,

Cucumbers, onions, radishes too,
Red peppers, beets to name just a few,

Green beans grown tall in the heat of the day,
Pumpkin vines swirling every which way,

Tomatoes and apples, red as can be,
Eat a ripe peach right from the tree,

Fix a grand feast from the bounties you see,
They’re growing for you and growing for me,

We're ever so lucky
Don't you agree?


  1. This could be a song on Broadway!

  2. What a nice compliment! I wish I knew how to compose - I'd give it a try. Thanks so much.
