For the Soul

Let’s not pretend this concoction is hard

You could fit it all on one recipe card.

A whole chicken is fine, but with only thighs

The soup will taste great, and pleasing to try.

Take carrot, celery, chicken and onion

Put in some water and click the stove on.

Add the meat and the bones – bones are the key.

The simmering water sets flavor free.

Season it well with rosemary and thyme

And a bay leaf, the zest of a lime.

(Or lemon instead, enough for the zing)

Salt and pepper as it sits simmering.

Leave it alone for a turn of the clock

Pull out the bones and admire the stock.

To this, salt to taste and noodle it up.

When done to your liking, its time to sup.

Chicken noodle is hearty, hot, and nutritious.

Simmer bones longer for added richness.

It’s perfect, I say alone in the bowl.

A 1/2 sandwich will also feel right at home.
