Beans


Suddenly it's bean time!
Yes, we've got beans:
Fresh beans, green beans,
Long, wiggly lean beans,
Handfuls, pocketfuls, bags, bowls, tureenfuls!

Beans for lunch and beans for tea,
And beans for nibbles in between!

Beans for brunch - and midnight munch! -
More beans than you have ever seen!

Beans for neighbours, colleagues, friends -
and more beans ready to pick at weekends!

Beans for the freezer: squeeze a few more
Into the drawer 'til you can't shut the door!

Beans for November, December, next year,
For springtime, next summer... when more will appear.

Yes, more beans, galore beans, bore beans, oh dear!
How about sprouts for a change of scene?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
