My table is laden with finest treasure
That has ever given my palate pleasure:
Ruby tomatoes and emerald cukes bright
Fresh- picked from vines, epicurean delight!
There are topaz carrots and peridot peas,
Among plump golden pumpkins sure to please.
The pearly white onions and amethyst beets
With great garnet radishes make dreams complete.
What more wondrous wealth could ever be found
Than delicious jewels mined from fertile ground?
