Mud and moss and sand and clay,
Loam and silt and plant decay.
Grab a trowel, dig and toil,
Run your fingers through the soil.
Dirt is lovely! Dirt is great!
Grows the food that’s on your plate!
Stack it, scrunch it, pack it down,
Rich and fertile, earthy brown.
Brings new life to many lands--
Are you done? Go wash your hands.
