Ukulele and Tulips Poem

Tulips in bloom, a sight so grand
A field of red, a sea of sand
But add a ukulele, strumming sweet
And the scene becomes complete

The tulips sway, the ukulele sings
A perfect match, two joyous things
Together they bring such delight
A beautiful sight, a beautiful sight

So tiptoe through the tulips with me
Strum a tune on our ukulele
We’ll dance and sing, our spirits free
Tulips and ukuleles, just you and me
