A bushel full of tomatoes from the plants we’ll soon be planting
A season full of herbs that will soon be sowed
Add in a short shower and a dash of warm weather to help both grow.
A friend, ready at the rescue, when we’re in a pinch
Add a scattering of good friends for every day cheer.
Fold in a warm and safe home. Blend well and love excessively.
