Food for Thought - Vegetable Poetry


This is from a poetry concept by Jeanne Losey...with the combination of poetry and vegetables, what's not to love?

Cabbage always has a heart,
Green beans string along...
You're a cute tomato,
Will you peas to me belong?

To prove you can't be beet
Lettuce get together
Something's sure to turnip
In spring time garden weather

If you carrot all for me
Don't squash my hopes and dreams
Or tears will fill potato's eyes
And turn the collard green

I'd work and share my celery
I'll cauliflower shop and say
I'm sweet corn to lend an ear
Just say simply, "I love you,"
                 and that's the perfect day.
