Memories of love! I had my first bar, rock hard and tasted like soap, Grandma saved it under the bed for me,but it was the only way she could protect it from the ravages of war, she was sad and embarrassed, but it was one of the sweetest gifts I ever received!

A Christmas treasure

That brings much pleasure!



Marzipan a gift of nature

Moulted by man

With nuts and paste and pan


Wrapped in gold

Leaves around

What is inside will astound


Itís tasty and sweet

Yet refined and discreet

 Most perfect to eat


Coated in chocolate dark

A thin film of its bark

To give extra spark


One bar will do

But better is two

Leisurely chew


There as you walk in the park

Under lights when itís dark

Eat the rest, while your bottom you park


Just for a moment or so

Your senses will know

Youíre deep in the flow


Nourished in body and soul

You feel totally whole

A heavenly goal.

Marzipan...My Favorite too. We have a new hershey out that has marzipan centers. I never can find them once they hit the shelves.
This is a touching tribute to your gift long ago. This is most precious I believe.
