A gal was recounting her woes
As she pulled on her old running clothes.
I am sad to report
That my times now fall short.
But I have a long run in my hose!

N is for Nasturtium
Bright as is sunlight
Spicy to the tongue.
Remember how Mother
Would butter the bread
Saying, "Go pick the leaves.
Make your lunch sandwich -
With cheese if you want.
Milk or hot chocolate?
It's all yours to pick!
