wk 262 zest


Limoncello Instead


I’ve a zest for life, this is true

Life’s thrown me a lemon or two


Woe is me

I’ll never be


I’ll not turn sour and bitter

With vodka and zest

A time to rest

I will have a delicious elixir

  1. A fun poem for sure, and explains why I call you Thunder!

    That drink looks deadly (says red wine girl) so I’ll take my share of the zest and cake it on toast and honey! xoxo

  2. Nothing like a little zest in live and your vodkaf…kaf,,,ka. Zest is such a pain to scrape from lemons, but it does add life to whatever you put it in or on.

  3. Oh my. Look who is here!
    Great poem, Dale, laying out your philosophy of life in magnificent metaphor, one with which we all agree. Well done. 🙂

  4. Ha! Sounds delicious! I love lemons, they’re one of my favourite smells. They get a bad rap. I wouldn’t know how to make this but I can bring the vodka to get it started… 🙂

  5. Q

    To the bummer you’ll scream summer, and leave them to whither and whine. And not for nothing, but while they whine, you’ll wine. Not that beer is a bad alternative, and let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with bourbon. But gin has its place, according to Ole Blue Eyes. And if not that, tequila . . because George Clooney ain’t need to convince you of that.

    And when all else fails? Moonshine! Apple Pie, of course.

    Nice sprint through forty-one. Very zesty.

  6. Il faut tout prendre avec un geste.
    Ou bien serait-ce un reste?
    Non, que nenni, avec la teste…
    Mais avec dix-neuf mots c’est encore leste
    Cette histoire est une peste
    Huit mots me manquent, finissons avec un zeste.

  7. Excellent …. As soon as I saw the theme, limoncello immediately came to my mind – and then you came through! Yes – it is an elixir! As a matter of fact, i should be bottling my latest batch this weekend. Gotta have it for summer!

    The WP Gnomes got me. No wonder I wasn’t receiving notifications of your posts – they changed my settings! Grrrrr …
