How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee fresh from the farmer’s market on warm summer days.
I love thee plucked from the garden before the chickens nibble at you.
Whether you are green, purple, dinosaur or if you prefer, lacinto, with fringe or curly-cue.
I love thee raw in a salad, blitzed in a blender or baked and eaten as a chip.
I love thee with tahini sauce, in a smoothie or with dip.
However you are served up my taste buds savor every bite.
My body sings with ecstasy at the nutrition you provide.
Kale without you I am devoid.
Beta Carotene, vitamin K, C, lutein and calcium.
Ooh, you make my cells hum.
You bloom like a flower.
And cook up in under an hour.
From Ireland to Japan you are enjoyed the world over.
Kale you are a most delicious lover.
