Message in a Chocolate Bar

Chocolove Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate

Message in a Chocolate Bar

With Christmas, came a chocolate bar.  Delicious, but not just.  When you check the cover, the small note promises "love poem inside"  Lovely added value:

A Magic Moment I Remember

A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there,
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare.

I pray to mute despair and anguish,
To vain pursuits the world esteems,
Long did I near your soothing accents,
Long did your features haunt my dreams.

Time passed. A rebel storm-blast scattered
The reveries that once were mine
And I forgot your soothing accents,
Your features gracefully divine.

In dark days of enforced retirement
I gazed upon grey skies above
With no ideals to inspire me,
No one to cry for, live for, love.

Then came a moment of renaissance,
I looked up - you again are there,
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that`s beautiful and rare.
 Alexander Pushkin
