Smells

Rating: 2.6

WHY is it that the poet tells
So little of the sense of smell?
These are the odors I love well:

The smell of coffee freshly ground;
Or rich plum pudding, holly crowned;
Or onions fried and deeply browned.

The fragrance of a fumy pipe;
The smell of apples, newly ripe;

And printer's ink on leaden type.

50 + years after first coming across this poem, it is still so evocative for me. I have shared it with several friends and they agree. Most had never heard it before

The poem is an understandable one but should have more exciting adjectives
