An ode to Chocolate
Ah chocolate, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, after eating these Chocolate Éclairs;
When feeling out of sight, I simply need reach for you in a Chocolate Brownie.
I love thee to the level of this Chocolate Cake;
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for this Banana and Nutella Loaf;
I love thee purely, as only one can these Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies.
I love thee with a baking passion put to good use
In my Pear and Chocolate Spring Rolls, and in every crack of these Chocolate Crackle Cookies.
I love thee with a love I found in this Chocolate Fondant.
Despite my lost figure, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, because I can choose,
I shall but always love you (and especially those Lindt Chocolate Balls) before any other..
