The Kitchen Song
She loves him sweet and tender
She loves him with pies and cake
She loves him with buttery little biscuits
The kind she likes to bake.
She loves him good and hearty
She loves him with beef stew
She loves him with ribs and goulash
And rich bowls of thick burgoo.
She loves him hot and spicy
She loves him with red cayenne
She loves him with jalapeno peppers
And secret recipes from the Yucatan.
She loves him dark and steamy
She loves him with coffee and cream
She loves him with Earl Grey and Oolong
And toddies spiked with Jim Beam.
She loves him in so many ways
She loves him the best she can
She loves him sweet and good and hot,
Her sweet talkin’ everlovin’ man.

Yes, yes he does! Thanks – K
Sweetly delightful. Have you thought of a companion piece to this? Tangible metaphors for how he loves you back? You have me thinking whether or not I could come up with a pair of twin poems like that. Inspiring! Happy ❤ day.
David – what a clever idea – hadn’t considered it but will start thinking on that. I so appreciate your time and thoughtful comment – thanks! K
Aw, thanks. Well, you got me thinking too.
Good poetry is always worth re-publishing and I’d say this is good poetry and it wouldn’t take much editing to turn it into a cracking ballad! Well penned.
Always thought it could be put to music somehow – a silly little song. Thanks so much for dropping by and taking the time – K
I love this- it’s jolly and delicious-and fun.
You are sweet to say so – thanks! K
Man do you ever! And I have witnessed (and eaten) the fabulous food! Love you, Vickie
Love you too! K
YES! (LOVE=ACTION) That IS the kind of LOVE we all need!
Well Done and Happy Valentines Day!
Thanks, Red, and happy heart day to you too! K
Awesome! Happy Valentine’s Day to you both!
