A happy blend of sun and rain
Has caused our plants to blossom.
None more so than our rhubarb patch
Which leaves us with a problem:

Our sticks are over two feet long!
At least two inches wide!
But what to do will all these stalks,
When more crumbles makes you cry?

So marmalade it is. Or Jam.
I never know the difference?
(Although I’ve heard it’s something
About adding extra citrus).

In the cauldron, on the hob,
Stewing the hours away.
Until “that point” when it’s done,
And we’ve made “rhubarbalade”!
