In royal Purple
His heirs sharing his heirlooms
Christ, His Majesty
Day Five of the National/Global Poetry Writing Month challenge for 2016 – to spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants, and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of, one or more of these garden rarities.
Purple Majesty is known as the deepest purple of all purple potato varieties, hence the given name. Purple potatoes are grown for both fresh market potatoes and for chipping potatoes.
