Dinner In A Quick Lunch Room

a Poem by Stephen Vincent Benet

Soup should be heralded with a mellow horn,
Blowing clear notes of gold against the stars;
Strange entrees with a jangle of glass bars
Fantastically alive with subtle scorn;
Fish, by a plopping, gurgling rush of waters,
Clear, vibrant waters, beautifully austere;
Roast, with a thunder of drums to stun the ear,
A screaming fife, a voice from ancient slaughters!

Over the salad let the woodwinds moan;
Then the green silence of many watercresses;
Dessert, a balalaika, strummed alone;
Coffee, a slow, low singing no passion stresses;
Such are my thoughts as -- clang! crash! bang! -- I brood
And gorge the sticky mess these fools call food!

When I saw #2 I got really hungry and then - just a beautiful candle. I was expecting a candle light dinner - the candle and the light were there but no food at all!

Angil and friends
are in the kitchen;
for all intends
to make an elegant  
dinner fit for them,
with a delish Faroese scent yum
