Blessings From Difficulty - Poem by Esther Thornburg

Not feeling well is cause to seek the herb garden.
Let us meet the contents standing guard.
Some plants used for centuries gone by
Holding secrets that work, is why.

Search for berries of reds and blues,
Deep rooted nuts are seeds to use.
Brilliant green leaves from the salad row
Is food for most things that grow.

There is food in the root, stem, leaf and bloom
To nurture life and make life bloom.
A little of this and a little of that
May supply nutrients that last.
