Love Letter to Soup

To Soup, My Dearest:
I always want you nearest
In the winter time.

Your earthy elixir
Surely will fix 'er
Up when she's cold.

I like you with meat
Or a few peppers - sweet -
And always with garlic.

A handful of beans
Definitely means
You will be hearty.

A couple potatoes
To go with my tomatoes
Is synchronicity.

For the dregs: bread
Because the bowl surely led
Straight to this moment of sopping.
