Well, here we are, well past the Ides of June, and I've not posted the verse for this month. It's been a scorcher of a June this year. Temperatures for the last weeks have been in the 90's - not conducive to thinking of soup, but here it is:
In June I saw a charming group
Of roses all begin to droop
I pepped them up with chicken soup!
Sprinkle once, sprinkle twice
Sprinkle chicken soup with rice
by Maurice Sendak
I think we all could use a bit of pepping up these days.
