Greens’ leaves

Who does not love them, the fresh greens?
We sure appreciate the leaves,
but also fruit, carrots and beans
which nature for us heaves.

The plants make vitamins in spades;
they produce sugar, oil and such.
Their colours bloom in splendid shades,
they offer shadow, wood to touch.

They live in peace, without a sound
unless a storm rattles their leaves,
and suddenly mankind has found
what we purloined, nature retrieves.
