“Lilli pilli, loquat, cumquat tree” by Penny Szentkuti

This one is a skipping rhyme or chant to celebrate the fruits and flowers of a Sydney spring.

Lilli pilli, loquat, cumquat tree
What shall we have for afternoon tea?
Wattle in the garden, jasmine on the breeze
Lilli pilli, loquat, cumquat please!
