Reaping We Wonder
By Lucretia Penny
Could it be broccoli? Is it a beet?
Tomato? Potato. Irish or sweet?
Could it be maybe a roasting ear?
Bring out the botany and catalogs, dear.
Asparagus? Leeks? Cress as in creeks?
At long last we’re reaping the thing we have sown.
Could it be squash? An artichoke cone?
Spinach? kraut? the Brussels sprout?
But we raised it! It’s ours. We’d better find out!
