Tea and a Poem: Lemon Verbena

I’m a fan of lemon-flavored teas and also of using things fresh from my garden. Easy, breezy “recipes” are even better. It doesn’t get any simpler or more natural than this. Pick a few leaves from your Lemon Verbena, pour a cup of boiling water over them, let steep, and voila – Lemon Verbena Tea….

My Poetry: “Midsummer”

On Midsummer Day
My heart gave way
And buckled under once more
It began to rain
From my gloomy eyes
As it did so the night before
Silently I worked and wept
And made it through the Midsummer morn
Inside, the clouds were darkening still
Like those in a May spring storm
