February Redwork Snowman and Valentine Food for Thought


Valentine Food for Thought

CABBAGE always has a heart;
GREEN BEANS string along.
You’re such a cute TOMATO,
Will you PEAS to me belong?
You’ve been the APPLE of my eye,
You know how much I care;
So LETTUCE get together,
We’d make a perfect PEAR           
Now, something’s sure to TURNIP,
To prove you can’t be BEET;
So, if you CARROT all for me,
Let’s let our TULIPS meet.
Don’t SQUASH my hopes and dreams now,
Be my HONEY, dear;
Or tears will fill POTATO’s eyes,
While SWEET CORN lends an ear.

I’ll CAULIFLOWER shop and say,
Your dreams are PARSLEY mine.
I’ll work and share my CELERY,
So be my valentine.
