Sonnet 2

Through PHP and Java, skills were born
But settled now on Ruby, life’s true love.
To not look down on past projects with scorn
But elevate my craft and look above.

O, Ruby! A Bridgetown site could not hold
My love for thee, inside of markdown lines.
A fresh Rails application could not load.
Your name in the Gemfile - a thousand times.

Metaprogramming a new DSL
With nested blocks and elegant syntax
Cannot capture the rush of my heart’s swell
For all the language holds, still my tongue lacks.

Ruby 3, YJIT too, and also minitest
Static sites and CLIs! Ruby, you’re the best.
