Jewels of Summer
In a sea of green leaves
And dark earth,
I search for buttery yellow flowers,
And count all the treasures I will collect.
There are round ruby radishes.
And golden summer squash.
Soon there will be shades of
Amethyst, citrine, and emerald beans,
Topaz and amber potatoes.
I am rich in summer jewels.
Well, until I go and make a salad.
Even then, I'll still enjoy my wealth.
