Bean Soup, Or A Legume Miscellany Analysis

Nobody there is that doesn't love a bean.

If not the royal Navy bean, then the wax bean,

the soybean, the green bean, the black bean—the

pot is large, it contains multitudes—white bean,

pink bean, small red bean, the lowly pinto, the

lovely lentil—let the lamp affix its bean—or

the walnut-shaped garbanzo, large lima bean, baby lima,

(A reunion of the Bean families is here assembled),

the cranberry bean, white kidney bean, northern bean,

or their      ed cousins: green split pea, yellow

split pea, and ol' blackeye. A lineup

of likely legumes. Gather ye bean-pods

while ye may. Go and catch a falling bean

and if you catch one, let me know.

A man and a woman are one. A man and a woman

and a bean are one, or two, or three.



The beans I mean, no one has seen them made

or heard them made, but at supper-time

we find them there. Come live with me,

and eat some beans and we will love

within our means. One could do worse

than be an eater of beans.



Shall I compare thee to a summer's bean?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Had we but world enough, and time,

this coyness, Lady, were no crime.

But, at my back, I always hear

a pot of beans bubbling near.



Mark but this bean, and mark in this,

how little that which thou deny'st me is.

An aged bean is but a paltry thing.

I must lie down where all ladders start,

in the foul rag-and-bean shop of the heart.

O my love is like a red, red bean,

that's newly picked in June:

O my love is like a pinto bean,

that's truly cooked at noon.



So much depends upon a red kidney

bean. You might ask, Do I dare

to eat a bean? Dry beans can harm no one.

They remind us of home sweet home,

home on the range,

home where the heart is.

Without expecting anything in return,

they give us protein, zip, and gas.

Add what you will—onion, tomatoes, red

pepper, chili powder, juice of lemon,

salt & pepper to taste. Add ham

hocks, bring to a boil, simmer slowly.

Call your friends, serve with

panache,      ers, and green salad.



How do I cook them? Let me count the ways—

boiling, steaming, frying, baking.

And if these verses may thee move,

Sweet Lady, come live with me

and be my love. And if this fare

you disapprove, come live with me

and please be my cook.
