Some people think that brown’s ho-hummy,
But speaking for my rounded tummy,
"I love chocolate."

For fudge that’s mixed with peanut butter,
From time to time I’m heard to mutter,
“I love chocolate.”

Godiva makes a sweet confection
That rates to me as pure perfection.
I love chocolate.

With pudding or dark creamy pie—
“Give me some more,” my taste buds cry.
I love chocolate.

For ice cream “yum” in every way,
It’s Rocky Road that rocks my day.
I love chocolate.

As for the chocolate in candy,
Crinkles, chips, and chunks are dandy.
I love chocolate.

I'll have a cocoa cappuccino
Or maybe mocha frappachino.
I love chocolate.

I’ll take my cookies rolled or dropped,
As long as Hershey kisses topped.
I love chocolate.

I like all cakes, I must admit,
But devils food’s my favorite.
I love chocolate.

Add brownies, bars, and sweet fondues;
From all these treats, it’s hard to choose.
I love chocolate.

Chocolate’s my favorite color;
‘Cause it tastes better than any other.
I LOVE CHOCOLATE!

From one chocolate lover to another, loved your poem, made my mouth water!

Every person in FW is going to relate to your entry! :-) I could just taste it, as I read each description and I finally gave in and went to my stash and got a piece of Russell Stover chocolate covered coconut! I should have written about chocolate exclusively. There's no way you can not win with this entry! Big time Kudos!

I smiled at "rocky road rocks my day" and "chocolate is my favorite color" so very clever. Great work on this!
Brenda Rice 12/06/09
So do I. I also adore your poem. Good job.
Jan Ackerson 12/08/09
Wait...I'm not sure I get it...what do you love?

Just kidding...this was oh so fun to read!
Jim McWhinnie 12/08/09
Yummy!

I can't help myself ... this was a "delicious" poem!

You captured the essence of chocolate.

Sara Harricharan 12/09/09
Oooh, Me too! Me too!! I do SO love chocolate! ^_^ Great use of the repeating line and I'm sure practically every writer can relate to the lure of chocolate at some time or another. Really great use of topic! ^_^
Karlene Jacobsen 12/09/09
LOL, I LOVE this! Got me wanting a frappuccino though...
Chocolate seems to be a hot topic here at FW for sure. :)
Ruth Brown 12/09/09
Poetry in chocolate or is it chocolate is pure poetry. I heartily concur! MmmmGood!
Chely Roach12/09/09
Ah, we are soul sisters. The name Godiva makes me weak in the knees...
This was a delicious read!
Carol Penhorwood 12/10/09
Very cleverly done! What talent!
Edy T Johnson 06/26/10
I can definitely relate. My two favorite browns: chocolate and brown eyes :) By the way, does it take you very long to write these poems? The clever rhymes seem to just roll into place. I love it!
