A rush to judgement,
Ode to a tree,
It's a blessing,

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
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
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.
