Rhubarb Song   Poem  
Creators: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), Non-Member Artist (Other), Non-Member Artist (Inspiration), Non-Member Author(s)
A Southern folk song celebrates rhubarb.

Rhubarb in the garden,
Growing red and green,
Covers rows and hillocks
Far as can be seen.

Rhubarb in the kitchen
Needs a lot of care.
Put it on the counter;
Clean and chop it there.

Rhubarb in the oven
Smells so sweet and good,
Steaming up the windows
Just like baking should.

Rhubarb on the table --
Jams and cakes and pies --
Lays a feast of summer
Right before our eyes!

Author's Notes

This poem came out of the June 2011 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by a prompt from LJ user Mathhobbit, and posted as the freebie for this session. Then Catherine Faber (LJ user Catsittingstill) set the words to music; she is the composer, musician, and vocalist on the performance.
