From within the Unlit Fridge


If I were asked to name a god,
I'd invent one for chocolate.
For this is the substance,
That puts an end to all sadness.

Late at night, out of the unlit fridge,
I pull a very chocolatey, chocolate cake –
Nothing else in the world could sooth me now.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
