Chocolate for the Soul.

This papercut was commissioned as a wedding gift and it was inspired by a poem (uncredited atm as I cannot identify an author).

Chocolate for the soul,
Tales of adventure short and tall,
Wheels and wings and feet for momentum,
A pot that’s stirred to feed us all.

Salt in the air from the sea in the sun,
Red wine in the afternoon.

Collar pulled up at the wind at your neck,
A million stars bathe the moon.

Hiding is fun when you count to one hundred,
Secrets are only when no one else knows.

Icy beds mean bodies for blankets,
White blends with white in the snow.

Following the footsteps of famous explorers,
Boldly going where they’ve been before,

Chatting away when you’re snug as a bug,
But out like a light with the gentlest of snores.

The tickling scent from market and pan,
Packing boxes packed once more.

A thousand toe prints left in the sand,
A nervous knee touches the floor.

Smiles for the anxious,
Hugs for solace,
Chocolate for the soul.
Tales of adventure short and tall,
Wheels and wings and feet for momentum,
A pot that’s stirred to feed us all.
