Counting-Out Rhyme

Rating: 3.0

Silver bark of beech, and sallow
Bark of yellow birch and yellow
Twig of willow.

Stripe of green in moosewood maple,
Colour seen in leaf of apple,
Bark of popple.

Wood of popple pale as moonbeam,
Wood of oak for yoke and barn-beam,

Wood of hornbeam.

I see Grace's point. It is kind of a fun sounding piece when spoken aloud!
