VLUU L100, M100  / Samsung L100, M100Good morning all you fruits and veggies lovers! As I promised here is my watercolor painting of Bok Choy. I wrote the poem and painted the picture for my next book MORE Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies – the sequel to Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies. This special, healthy book isn’t published yet…seeking publisher now…don’t want to self-pub this time.  Any publishers/editors out there checking out this blog? Healthy Eating Starts With a Poem?

Acorn Squash Poem

squashSince we were talking about making acorn squash the other day…and since healthy eating starts with a poem…naturally it is time for me to post my Acorn Squash poem.  Drop this rhyme on your family the next time you make them acorn squash!  It is from my book Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies – Where Healthy Eating Starts With a Poem.


Acorn Squash 

The squirrel’s a brave and brazen sort

Who flies from tree to tree for sport

He hunts for acorns high and low

And saves them up for winter’s snow

When trees are bare, acorns no more

The squirrel comes up to my front door

As if to ask for food from me

“I took no acorns from your tree!”

For acorn’s not my favorite knosh

Unless it’s buttered acorn squash
