How about a Tuesday morning poem, to kick off this beautiful day?! This is one plant that I do not embrace and it feels exactly the same about me! I wish you all a poison ivy free gardening season…
Poison Ivy is that bumpy stuff,
that red and sore and lumpy stuff,
that somehow grows upon your face
and legs and arms and every place.
It itches, scratches, tickles too!
What’s a little kid to do
about that poison ivy goo?
This is torture, through and through!
The doctor said that Calamine
will soon become a friend of mine,
it stops the creepies, crawlies too,
now I know what I must do!
I’ll drink that Calamine, I will
to stop that poison ivy’s thrill!
I’ll drink it in one gulp or two;
I’ll drink it till my face turns blue!
But wait a minute, let me think,
will my speckled face turn pink,
from the Calamine you see,
is it worth it? No sirree!
I guess I’ll have to wait and see
how long these bumps will visit me.
Today, I guess they’re here to stay,
but tomorrow I hope they go away!
Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
