Alphabe- Thursday -  Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup

any kind of meat
beef brisket will do
carrots chopped
diced onions too

eggplant endive
fresh butter beans
garlic roasted
healthy spring greens

in goes the peppers
just a little heat
kale and kohlrabi
lemon grass and beet

mushrooms corn
new potatoes sliced
okra and tomatoes
purple cabbage diced

quick add the pasta
rutabaga and chard
spinach and celery
that grew in my yard


uncle Emmett's squash
very tasty we know
watercress zucchini
xtra servings we sow


yells of approval so richly deserved
Zestfully cheering as our soup is served

Held

green glass swigged dry
foot soldier slumbers in hay
brazen milk maid guards

Witness

eyes rimmed with nightmares
solitary youth scribbles
behind glass ~ chuckles

Spring Thaw

grand river tumbles
cascading from polished stones
downstream fly fishing

Loved your cute veggie poem!

And I liked the quotes, too, but I would want to change the grotz one, if I could, to...

The hopscotchers look like they're having fun!
What lovely poetry! (I like the lemongrass in the soup. I will have to try that!)

I love your quotes...and your little veggie poem, too! You're awfully clever!

I am copying these quotes down to use with wild abandon whenever I wish to impress someone with my wisdom!

Thanks for linking. This was wonderful.
