Happy Valentine's Day!

“You are so loved!”

I enjoy this poem by Carol Ann Duffy and thought that I’d share it with you on Valentine’s Day seeing as though Went has an insatiable love of food.

I'm not quite sure if Went's taste buds can handle their sweet flavour, but I ask you with tears in my eyes "What is food without onions?". [She jokes.]

by Carol Ann Duffy

Not a red rose or a satin heart.

I give you an onion.
It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
It promises light
like the careful undressing of love.

It will blind you with tears
like a lover.
It will make your reflection
a wobbling photo of grief.

I am trying to be truthful.

Not a cute card or a kissogram.

I give you an onion.
Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
possessive and faithful
as we are,
for as long as we are.

Take it.
Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring,
if you like.

Its scent will cling to your fingers,
cling to your knife.
