I promised some occasional poetry on this blog, but what I did not promise is that it would all be serious or polished! February’s poem is 100% factual, but just lent itself to some silly verse!
The Lemon Tree
In the middle of my garden grows a gnarly lemon tree.
It produces pounds of citrus gems,
Twice yearly just for me.
I am not the greatest nurturer and don’t water all the while
But it keeps on bearing yellow spheres
Like they’re going out of style.
I’ve made jars of jam and pots of curd and meringue-topped pies for dinner.
And last month tangy lemon mousse
Was a truly gastric winner.
Lemon cake and lemon tart and even Limoncello
I’m running out of new ideas,
No wait, there’s always jello!
