How do I love cheese? Let me count the ways.

How do I love cheese? Let me count the ways.
Co-written with Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love cheese? Let me count the ways.
I love feta and gouda and fried mozzarella,
My soul can feel the gooey cheese with marinara
For this dairy product is what I chase.

I love cheese to the level of every day’s
Most urgent need, by breakfast grumbles and lunchtime hunger pangs.
I love cheese freely, as men love football;
I love cheese purely, as they turn from the stove.
I’ll love cheese with the passion put to use
In my old age, and with my childhood love of Kraft American slices.
I love cheese with a love I seemed to lose
As I down the last bite. I love all cheese—
The mild cheddar, sharp cheddar, all the cheddars of my life; and, if God choose,
I’ll have cheese in heaven after death.
