Сливы. Малышам

Mother Earth's Children: by Elizabeth Gordon
 The Frolics of the Fruits and Vegetables (1914) is a collection of poems for young children to appreciate the joy of fresh food! See if you can make a game of finding and naming them next time you are at the farmer's market or grocery store.

 HAND in hand with summer comes
The happy family called the Plums,
Some dressed in purple, some in red;
They’re very pretty and well bred.

Вместе с Летом, к нам, друзья,
Приходит Слив веселая семья!
В пурпурных кто одеждах, а кто — в красных,
Все они сладки, желанны и прекрасны!
