Honey

When the sore throats call,
or just for the comfort of it
When I was a little girl
there was a nice elderly woman who came to look after us
while my parents was at work.
I loved her, and she was so warm hearted and nice.
Sometimes when I was hungry
after having played outside
I came in to our kitchen, and asked for a slice of bread.
I always wanted honey on it, cause she was so generous
and spread a load of the sweet stuff on.,
with butter underneath.
That was sweet heaven!

Every once in a while
I treat myself, and then,
I always think of her.

Oh....YOU.

It's 4 a.m. here, and I've been up for an hour with my swollen tonsils, just waiting for the clinic to open so I can go get a strep throat test.

All I want is tea with honey, but our only honey is congealed and crystallized beyond useful. I had to use sugar in my tea, and my throat feels no better.

I like honey very much especially with yogurt and nuts.

I really like this post. It reminds me of a memory I never had--yet seems familiar. The pictures are beautiful.
