Rhubarb-Strawberry Cobbler (with Fresh Thyme, Orange Zest, and Port!)

Rhubarb at the farmers market always excites me.  I grew up with a rhubarb patch in our garden, and my mom would always make rhubarb pie for my dad.  There was something about the tartness of the stalks mixed with the sweetness of the sugar that always stuck with me.
