A little poem came to me this morning.
With a stretch and a yawn
the new day dawns
towards a hazy tawny light
A blanket of soft cloud above
tucks us in and makes us right
And so we fall asleep again,
for one more lovely dream…
Of Rudolph Valentino,
chocolate kisses and cream
Of red red roses and cooing doves
and another day, another way and another chance to love!
And friends if Valentine’s Day isn’t all that you want… or for any reason, I’d like to offer you my “Soothie” recipe. What is a Soothie? It is a deliciously soothing night time drink:
• Warm 4 cups of your favourite milk on the stove. (Any kind of milk will do – my favourite is vanilla soy.)
• Add in a tablespoon of vanilla and two tablespoons of Horlicks malted milk (it’s a Brit thing – but also works well without)
• Pour and share! (Or drink it all yourself while writing poetry and listening to relaxing music)
