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.
