Ode to Chocolate (NPM #5)

This one’s especially for you, Mom. 🙂

Ode to Chocolate

Dark, milky, white, creamy,
Hard, silky, soft, dreamy—
Chocolate, you’re a work of art;
Cho-co-late, you’ve won my heart.

Chocolate cakes, and frosting, too,
Chocolate pudding and fondue,
Ice cream, cookies—filled with chips,
Strawberries with chocolate tips.

Dark, milky, white, creamy,
Hard, silky, soft, dreamy—
Chocolate, you’re a work of art;
Cho-co-late, you’ve won my heart.

Truffles boasting goey glee,
Cups all peanut butter-y,
Cacao: eighty-five percent,
Chocolate as a supplement?

Dark, milky, white, creamy,
Hard, silky, soft, dreamy—
Chocolate, you’re a work of art;
Cho-co-late, you’ve won my heart.

Fudge and brownies, nuts or none,
Swiss and German and Belgian,
Mochas (chocolate plus caffeine),
And the dipped espresso bean!

Dark, milky, white, creamy,
Hard, silky, soft, dreamy—
Chocolate, you’re a work of art;
Cho-co-late, you’ve won my heart.
