I guess this saccharine ode to a sweetheart is an appropriate follow up to last weeks poem about an old fellow’s love affair with cakes and slices…maybe a bit too much sugar, but totally worth it!
Hey sugar-face freckles
Your hair in the sunshine is like cotton candy
And your skin smells like
Burnt sugar and ripe peaches,
Peaches and cream in your cheeks.
Oh cup-cake, I could eat you up
My honey sweetheart sugar-pie;
Cross my heart and hope to die:
Pass me that lemon –
My blood sugar is too high.
The sweet cup-cakey image at the top is from an afternoon tea at Ararat Regional Art Gallery last year. The second is a mismatched cup and saucer from my collection. Odd pieces are easier to find than pairs, and it’s fun to find which ones ‘belong’ together. Finally, a rose, because a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, as Romeo remarked. I’m sure if he knew of cotton-candy, he would have compared it to Juliette’s hair!
My third contribution to Lisa’s 1 Day 1 World Project – I was at the Ararat Regional Art Gallery again today, as we were celebrating the Makers Market exhibition with sparkling wine, cupcakes and strawberries. We had a slightly chaotic time getting it all ready, but it all looked beautiful by 2 o’clock, when the guests began to arrive.
Three of the Gallery’s volunteers have a cabinet each to show our wares – Jiah (Elephant and Rose), me (Sukie’s Original) and Jade (Zooblast Knits), plus staff member Deb, with beautiful felted wraps (don’t think about the polyester stuff used in kids craft – this is something else entirely!) I forgot to count, but we had a good turn out and lots of admiration for our work. By 2.45, the table full of goodies was nearly empty and it was time to wash up and restore order.
