Flowering Peas Tom Lata 2013

When I was young I hated Peas
Floured slush that was our feed
Soft round balls of English mush
Eating Peas was really tough
But beans I prefer, Please

As I road my bike into the woods
I stood right up to take a look
Hit a tree, fell in the brush
I stood up in some disgust
I saw pink flowers crushed

I grabbed my handy flower book
took my time to take a look;
The page turned to a vine with strings
pods so plenty, a light green sheen,
that was full of Flowering Peas,

Chorus
Peas of every kind amaze
Hoary and Butterfly are ablaze
Everlasting, Perennial, Scurvy, and what?!
Sensitive Peas move at your touch!
