Sassafras

Standard

An ole’ tree, yawning in the ground,

grown deep in the slow south.

Children back then knew it to be

sweet in taste and sugary in tea.

While old black pots were stirred all day,

seasoned with grounded leaves of sine quo non.

to make that jambalaya to steam away

the colorful savor is still not gone.
