Earth Elements

Did you ever stop to think about
Our earth and what it has within
Things that sprout from the ground
Flowers, vegetables and a juicy watermelon

Apples growing from fertile trees
We pick by bushels to be sold in stores
Or made into fruit pies and cakes
Delicious food by the score

Goats who love to eat those apples
Kind of comes full circle it seems
And look at that dog over there
Waiting patiently for what life brings

We take so much for granted
Our earth has so much charm
And that’s what we discovered
When we visited the Earth Elements Farm!
