Spring Song – by Minn Thorp

Pioneers and Progress, Alix Clive Historical Club, 1974

With tomatoes tall on my window sill,

With catalogues scattered nigh,

Tho’ the snow is gone the winds are chill

Yet my spirits soar on high.

I have dreams and schemes of petunias frilled

Of cabbages round and green

Of rows and rows of potatoes hilled

And many a tender bean.

As I sit and dream such rosy dreams

The cutworm does the same

The wire worm so long and mean

Will play his little game.

But to work, to dig and hoe,

For to make our dreams come true

For we must work, if we’re to grow

Our flowers old and new.

For Petunia’s red – There’s the fire chief

In every garden add

New peas and beans may come to grief

But our little fun we’ve had.
