    ....the latest

    ode to rhubarb

    That rhubarb is a humble growth
    can scarce be held in doubt.
    It huddles hard by hidden walls
    and rarely runs a rout.
    A vegetable bound for pies
    is not a rose to shout.
    So, loath should I to other eyes
    my prize rhizome to tout.

    But, companioned by my minion's face,
    yon rhubarb is a different case.
    They bloom together in this space,
    and fill the lawn with simple grace.
