Bonus Poem - At the Farmstand

"I LOVE this time of year,"
I overheard her at the stand,
"The peaches!!! And the corn!!!" she gushed,
While paying, cash in hand;
The children at her knee seemed
Very glad she was their mom,
One, looking all around, the other's
Hand safe in her palm;
And though I like the produce, too,
All lush and firm and sweet,
The thing I love about this time
Is how some people treat
It as the perfect gift, and so
Express a perfect joy,
Which brings a smile to grown ups who
Once more are girls and boys.
