Tomato Soup Sonnet by Holy Cow
Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup
a fave on a bitter cold winters day,
frozen into the house we would all troop,
coats, boots and scarves would all be put away.
Then mom wold serve us big steaming bowls
into the soup we would dip the grilled cheese,
a sure fire cure for the winter drolls,
hey mom, can we have another bowl, please?
The soup would warm us from the inside out
soup and grilled cheese was manna from heaven,
we knew this was what love was all about,
at least when your nine, eight and seven.
On cold winter days at age thirty three,
it's tomato soup and grilled cheese for me.
