A Watering Rhyme
hour, watering,
noonday, boots,
soak, heat
Early in the morning,
Or the evening hour,
Are the times to water
Every kind of flower.
Watering at noonday,
When the sun is high,
Doesn’t help the flowers,
Only makes them die.
Also, when you water,
Water at the roots;
Flowers keep their mouths where
We should wear our boots.
Soak the earth around them,
Then through all the heat
The flowers will have water
For their thirsty ‘feet’!
