Country Boys - Poem by Edward Baker

Harvesting and gleaning
Down on the farm
Bean and pea picking
Strengthens the arm
Selling fruit in country lanes
Putting in tomato canes
Tree climbing, birds nesting
Now in decline
Tobogganing and snow clearing
Fun at the time
Thashing and rabbiting
Are great when you're small
Bell ringing, choir singing
I've done them all
There's lots of fun
When you've got no toys
After all, we were
Country boys.
