The Letter "V"
I've many friends whose name begins with the letter V
They live inside my garden green, come along and see!
One is purple and creeps along in clumps along the ground
She is named Veronica her shape is low and round.
Another plant of purple hues you'll find on bended knee
Is Violet who grows in the grass full of fragrance sweet.
And then there's tall Valerian all dressed in lacy white
She stands up straight and opens wide her petals to the light.
And don't forget the vines that grow along my fence and wall
Virginia Creeper with leaves of green that turn red in the fall.
Sweet Ivy is a sturdy vine with a V in the middle of her name
She likes the shade and fills the wall around my window frame.
And then a last surprise that stood in my maple tree
The grandest letter of them all, a great big letter "V"!
So when you walk along my path, my dear friends you will see
Violet, Virginia, Veronica, Ivy and Valerie!
