Culinary Sonnet

Figs stuffed with prosciutto and mascarpone cheese,
A plate of bacon wrapped scallops and pineapple,
French onion soup is bound to please
Or garlic steamed mussels with which to grapple.
Artichoke hearts smothered in sherried cream,
Organic pears with sugar and cinnamon, butter sautéed,
Pork tenderloin medallions make a Demi-glaced dream
While crisped Lyonnaise potatoes are made.
Now, with a sip of Pouilly-Fuisse’,
Tastes flush the palate like a gourmet in concert.
A toast to good friends on this wonderful day,
As ice wine chills... to sip with dessert.
A plate of old fashioned bananas foster,
Perhaps in the morning, Eggs Benedict with lobster!?

    I have not found any restaurants serving such delightful fare in our vicinity. I guess I just don't know a chef of your calibre. Great writing and winning. Love, Joyce.

    Your title drew me in here, Craig and I am so glad it did! This is really yummy though I have to admit I have yet to sample a bunch of them -- reading this made me smile since it sorta of sounds familiar...eating and then thinking what to eat for the next meal... Lovely delicious sonnet, Craig! And also, thank you so much for the heart-warming comments you left in my poem. I have yet to catch up with commenting on poems. Enjoy your week :D!
