A Love Letter to... Lemons

Like pearls on young maidens, they hang from each tree


Imbued with the rich verdant soil of coastal Amalfi

On the tongue first acid, then salt and now sweet


A close harmony of flavour with which no fruit can compete

Dressed in your nectar, you make shy leaves sing

Or dipped in your essence, you awaken any dull thing


Piled high in a fruit bowl, you bring summer inside


Carrying us on the back of your scent, to the Amalfi hillside
