When Green Becomes Tomatoes

When Green Becomes Tomatoes by Julie Fogliano.

when green becomes tomatoes there will be sky and sun and possibly a cloud or two
 when green becomes tomatoes there will be leaves and flowers tall and standing straight and someone splashing, jumping, diving down
 when green becomes tomatoes there will be wings and something inching, green and small and a sweetly, tweetly chirping song
 when green becomes tomatoes there will be round and there will be red and there will be tomatoes (more red than green) (more round than seed) (more on the vine than way deep down)
 when green becomes tomatoes

Thank you Jep for sharing this colorful poem.

    I love it! My sister and I were just discussing our gardens. My first, giant tomato just started showing a blush of pink yesterday and I am so excited. I can't believe I go to read your blog and find this sweet poem!

  3. You have read the 64 dollar tomatoe book haven't you?
