Field Fruits - Poem by Bernard Shaw

Barley, Oats, Wheat and Rye.
Four field fruits I hold very high.
Wheat for our bread and cakes,
and all of the delicacies that the Baker makes.
Barley is used for making Whisky,
Oats fed to a horse keep him frisky.
Then of course there is the Rye,
A useful poetic word that rhymes with eye,
Or sigh, or nigh, or by, not forgetting sky.
Oats of course for Porridge, salty and hot,
Without it the Scots would be in a spot.
Barley for the making of soups,
Nice and thick ladled with scoops.
Four Field Fruits I hold very high,
Barley Oats, Wheat and Rye.
