Graphic from the book for the top of even-numbered pages

April on Half Moon

Seed time and weed time and cattle out to grass,
Women-folk a-settin' hens and plantin' garden sass. 
Gee, I'm tired of pickled pork and home baked 
Mother, pass the sassafras and sour dock greens. 
Peach bloom and mint perfume and me a-diggin' bait, 
I ought to be a-plowin', but the fish won't wait.
