Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam

Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

The fruits of warm delightful days
Have ripened and received praise.
Sadly summer is coming to an end.
Into fading autumn we now transcend.

We have picked the sun-drenched treasures.
How can we preserve their joyful pleasures?
Is there a way to hold and contain the glow?
Secure it while anticipating winter’s snow.

Find a recipe to extend the radiance of the day.
Maintain the fresh sparkle of a moment today.
Lusciousness is preserved for our craving bellies,
Captured in tightly capped jars of jams and jellies.

A favorite choice is strawberry-rhubarb jam.
On a scale of one to ten, it is a big grand slam.
It is an unlikely combination of tart and sweet.
Resulting in a duo that is impossible to beat.

Riches of the world fall short when compared…
Shelve a supply that has an abundance to be shared.
Joy in a jar that is appreciated when received as a gift.
As the days get shorter, a nibble gives the heart a lift.
