The Farm Wife

"A Cook" has a family to feed now
And food in the "Refrigerated" space is low
"Empty' is the panty but garden endows
So she visits "The Garden" lain in rows

Outside the garden gate she takes "A Pause"
Just a moment in time to God says "Thanks"
Before "The Morning Chore" gives Sonrise applause
She begins work "Transformed" beside potato banks

"Georgia Peaches" she peels; sings "The Same Song"
Today there won't be a changed "Epilogue"
"Recipe For Change" comes further along
Later complaints "Just For You" she'll catalogue

"Succulent Georgia Peach Pie" she'll serve up
The gentle cook will fill your empty cup.....

I am no longer able to garden
I do miss those fresh vegetables..

    Vegetables and fruit fresh from the garden. There's nothing like it.
