My husband told me I had to write poems about our dog and our herbs tonight- so I submit for your enjoyment my quick jottings. 🙂
He has tiger stripes and polka dot socks
We loved him at the first and haven’t stopped
With his slinky cat stretch and kangaroo hop
He eats grass likes cows- but is really a dog
Lemon verbena, rosemary, thyme
Cilantro, oregano, basil- they’re fine! (Sorry, bad rhyme! How ’bout sublime?)
All mostly green, still variation is seen
In texture and fragrance and flavor serene.
With a few simple plants we’ll all eat like queens-
All for the price of a few dozen dimes.
