My Ode To Rhubarb:

Sweet and sticky
When you bubble
If it burns you
You’re in trouble

Fresh from the garden
Don’t eat the top!
Find it everywhere
Bunnies do hop

I dip it in sugar
To make it taste sweeter
I peel off the skin
To make it look neater

It grows near the fence
Where a person can find
Great leafy villages
Of the same kind

I want you in pie
To eat you as jelly
To spread on my biscuit
And fill up my belly

I hope you grow up
To be tall and sweet
Then i’ll eat you all up
My favorite treat!
