Good morning! It is so good to see you at Herbal Roots Zine! What do you think of the giveaway from yesterday? Can you believe that our friends at Attar Herbs and Spices are gifting us with 2 half pound packages of roasted Chicory root to give away to one of our lucky readers? There’s still time to sign up to win, if you haven’t done so already. Kristine will be drawing the winner on March 14, 2014.
For today, open your zine to page 28. At the bottom of the page, you will see a small, rectangular box. What’s inside? It’s “Ode to Chicory”! First, read the poem to yourself then out loud. Pay close to attention to the rhyme scheme. What’s the pattern of the rhyme? When you are ready, recite the poem to a loved one. Can you say it by heart? If you wish, add two more lines to the poem. You can post them below or as a comment on our facebook page. Enjoy!
