A to Z Monday ~ The Letter H

I Hate Honeydew (& cantaloupe) melon. The smell reminds me of the ether they used for my surgeries as a child!
Since I don't have any great H food photos for this week,

here is my pathetic attempt at H poetry

Haddock & Halibut are two yummy fishes.

Heavy cream on Huckleberries another of my fave dishes.

Horseradish is lovely on sandwiches or eggs.

I love nothing better than Huge King Crab legs!!

I'll stay away from Haggis, Ham, Honeydews and Horse.

Not one of those H's tempt me as first course.

And though I love Norwegians their Herring leaves me cold.

I could go without those fishies 'til I grow verrrry old.

But bring on the Halva, seeds with Honey as binder.

To eat this confection I need no reminder!

And Hummus is awesome when dipped with a pita.

Who'd have guessed that chickpeas would have ME as an eatta!

I've run out of H words that tickle my fancy.

So get over to Jen's blog ~ Yes, git now! Go Nancy!!

Cute poem! And I like all the same H's that you do. Though, I also like honeydew.

Now I have a Hankering for Halva...

Happy Monday!

Great poem, Cassie! I had ether as a child and the memory will never go away. Having said that I love cantaloupe..but not honeydew.

Rev. Paul said...

The others have said it well; so you're a poet as well as a photographer & writer. Show-off!


Ben said...

Nice one - you covered a lot of ground! And I agree - stay away from the haggis and (I laughed at this one) horse!

Daisy said...

Very clever poem, Cassie. I laughed at "horse" too! :D

Happy Monday to you!

Ha ha ha! This is wonderful, made me giggle reading it. If only I had the time to write poems!!! I love that you used phonetic words. Halva? Oooooh, you're talking my lingo now!

I didn't see hone on here (tee hee!) and I do love honeydew. Great post!
