Raspberries, strawberries, ripe saskatoons;
Blackberries, blueberries, rhubarb since June.
Apricots, peaches and nectarines fine;
Green grapes and cantaloupe, plums of three kinds.

Carrots, potatoes and peas in the shell;
Green beans and radishes, spinach and kale.
Onions, tomatoes, peppers and squash;
Lettuce and parsley, beets red and posh.

I could eat every minute of each summer day,
No sleeping, no exercise, no time for play.

And I would, if there wasn’t so much to do in summer.
