And so to bed

After all that we had no room for our cheese or chocolates so they were deffered to another day. The whole day reminded me of the poem that Mr Crafty's sister read at our wedding:

You Made Crusty Bread Rolls
by Gary Jonson

You made crusty bread rolls filled with chunks of brie
And minced garlic and drizzled with olive oil
And baked them until the brie was bubbly
And we ate them thoughtfully, our legs coiled
Together under the table And then salmon with dill
And lemon and whole-wheat cous cous
Baked with garlic and fresh ginger, and a hill
Of green beans and carrots roasted with honey and tofu.
it was beautiful, the candles and linens and silver,
The winter sun setting on our snowy street,
Me with my hand on your leg, you, my lover,
In your jeans and green T-shirt and beautiful feet.
How simple life is. We buy a fish. We are fed.
We sit close to each other, we talk and then we go to bed.

And so we wended our way to bed, full of food and romance, to lay our happy heads on our Lush Designs Love pillows:


  1. Hi I love you blog! I also love this poem, does he have a website?

  2. Hi Hannah - thank you for your comment!
    I am not sure if he has his own website but we found the poem on Jonathan Carroll's blog who seems to be a fan as there are a few of his poems on there
