Poem - Who made the Pie?

Who ploughed up the field?

Who planted the seed?

Who scared off the crows?

Who dug up the weeds?

And when harvest came

Who cut down the corn

And ground it to flour

From dusk until dawn?

Who raised all the cattle

From calf until cow?

Who tended the pigs

From piglet to sow?

Who made them a shelter

From rain and from heat?

Who sold them at market

Their milk and the meat?

Who tended the garden

Where grew all the veg

The taters and carrots

With herbs round the edge?

Who kept it all watered

And chased off the slugs?

And when they all ripened

Who dug them all up?

Who cut up the logs

From woods in The Shire?

Who scooped up the coal

To put on the fire?

The veg and the meat

Who sliced, diced and chopped

To place in a tray

With pastry on top?

Who placed on the table

This pie that I see?

For so many hobbits

Did help make my tea!

So think of this pie

It's more than a treat

It's all of The Shire

That makes it so sweet
