Package of Seeds

by Aileen Fisher

They can’t see their pictures,
they can’t read the label —
the seeds in a package —
so how are they able
to know if they’re daisies
or green for the table?

It sounds like a fancy,
it sounds like a fable,
but you do the sowing,
the weeding, the hoeing,
and they’ll do the knowing
of how to be growing.
