gertrude's garden

gertrude grew a lovely garden
in her left ear and her right
if the left side was in shadow
then the other side had light

gertrude grew all kinds of vegetables
tomatoes, peas and squash
and she sometimes used the bean poles
double duty to dry wash

for her flowers, bees and butterflies
were often hanging round
she'd ask you to repeat if there
was too much buzzing sound

and at harvest, see her pantry
wonder how she grew all that
you'd swear she was pulling rabbits
from a magician's ear-shaped hat
