My girlfriend drew this picture when we were in high school. It deserves more powerful words but this is my modest effort

 Drawn by Karen Blankenship Johnson, 1967

It’s just a scrap of paper.
The pencil drawing starting to fade,
but to me A Taste of Honey
is a treasure lovingly made.
Once upon a time
during days long gone,
I was young and in love
with my best friend Don.
As I sat in study hall
and whispered with my good friend,
she picked up a pencil
and drew a love without end.
She titled it A Taste of Honey and
a romantic scene began to appear.
As I looked at her creation,
I knew I’d cherish it for many a year.
It’s just a scrap of paper.
The pencil drawing starting to fade,
but to me A Taste of Honey
is a treasure lovingly made.

That's one great poem from a beautiful drawing that is frozen in time. You just never know when a taste might come visit again. You just never know...

Have a Happy New Year!

This one so touched my heart. And the drawing is so well done and beautiful, showing love and the moonlight on the dock… I can almost see myself there on a summer night. I hope she was drawing you and your best friend from what she had seen the night before.

First loves are, so it has been said, and so it has been with me, first loves are never to be forgotten... Your poem says it so sweetly, Donna... Happy New Year to you.

No, your words are fitting and powerful connection to the drawing. I love both equally.

What a treasure it is. I can see why you have kept it all these years. Your poem is filled with the feeling of love you had all those years ago and remains today. Love it! Thanks for sharing. I wonder if she has done anything with her art since 67.
