Chocolates


Obsession is not a word
to describe my fascination with chocolates.

Milk chocolates that melt in you mouth
up to the deep dark nectar of the gods
have caught me with their intricate taste
and I am addicted
to chocolates in all forms and fashions
as long as they are real Belgian
or from Switzerland.

Confectioners are my Achilles heel
where specialised chlorates in all kinds of forms
are to be bought

and I do love sugared orange pieces
in dark chocolate,
ginger and strawberries
dipped in milk-chocolate,

all kinds of fudges and nuts
wrapped in brown fuzzy blankets
that melts in your mouth

and confectionary chocolates
with fillings that will satisfy even the gods,

chocolate roses and chocolate drinks,
chocolate logs and chocolates
and chocolates

are the things to which I am addicted
and they drive me crazy
and I have got to stop writing now
as I have got to have one.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
