Wraps Me Up Like a Warm Burrito

“The Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” – Gilbert K. Chesterton

Think about it. This is true!

Now, I understand that not everyone is as enamored with cheese as I am, and for some very good reasons, but when I need comfort food gooey, stretchy, warm cheese is cheaper than therapy.

If you can recall a poem that discusses cheese, I would love to hear it!

  1. Stilton, thou shouldst be living at this hour
    And so thou art. Nor losest grace thereby;
    England has need of thee, and so have I–
    She is a Fen*. Far as the eye can scour,
    League after grassy league from Lincoln tower
    To Stilton in the fields, she is a Fen.
    Yet this high cheese, by choice of fenland men,
    Like a tall green volcano rose in power.
    Plain living and long drinking are no more,
    And pure religion reading “Household Words”,
    And sturdy manhood sitting still all day
    Shrink, like this cheese that crumbles to its core;
    While my digestion, like the House of Lords,
    The heaviest burdens on herself doth lay.

    G.K Chesterton – He wrote of cheese, of being a logical vegetarian, and took issue with grocers . . . Odd fellow.


  2. This, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    The cheese-mites asked how the cheese got there,
    And warmly debated the matter;
    The Orthodox said that it came from the air,
    And the Heretics said from the platter.
    They argued it long and they argued it strong,
    And I hear they are arguing now;
    But of all the choice spirits who lived in the cheese,
    Not one of them thought of a cow.
