A man watches his pear tree day after day, impatient for the ripening of the fruit.

Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both fruit and tree.

But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap!

~ Abraham Lincoln



 My Humble Ode to a Humble Vegetable


Ah Zucchini – treasured friend

I soon will mourn the summer’s end.

Thy speckled flesh and frolicking flower

Are coming to their finishing hour.

Sauteed and raw,  I’m feasting now

Before you take your final bow.



Earth’s crammed with heaven,

And every common bush afire with God;

But only he who sees, takes off his shoes –

The rest sit around it and pluck blackberries.

~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
