Turnip Greens

sown in summer, fall is their spring
the kiss of frost has sweetened them

too mature they toughen
turn bitter

but it takes some aging
to build character

embellish just a little
but keep it simple

a touch of buttering
a little seasoning

don’t overwhelm them
learn to love the tang

take them or leave them
but don’t try to change them.
