“Farm Visit,” Friend, Oct. 2012, 17
Pick an apple from the tree,
One for you and one for me.
Pick a pumpkin from the ground.
It’s too heavy! Put it down!
Pick some corn into a sack.
Toss it up and over your back.
Pick some eggs from under the hen.
Hold them as gently as you can.
Pick tomatoes from the bush.
If you drop them, they will mush.
Pick things high, pick things low.
Pick berries fast, pick melons slow.
Pick a pear, yellow and sweet.
I like to pick the food I eat!
