Taste of summer
"On a summer vine, and low,
The fat tomatoes burst and grow;
A green, a pink, a yellow head
Will soon be warm, and shiny red;
And on a morning, hot with sun,
I'll find and pick a ripened one.
Warm juice and seeds beneath the skin --
I'll shut my eyes when I bite in."
--"Tomato Time" by Omaha native Myra Cohn Livingston, poet and prolific children's author (1926-1996)
