When you came, you were like red wine and honey,
And the taste of you burnt my mouth with its sweetness.
Now you are like morning bread,
Smooth and pleasant.
I hardly taste you at all for I know your savour,
But I am completely nourished.
— Amy Lowell, “Decade,” The Oxford Book of American Poetry. Edited by David Lehman & John Brehm. (Oxford University Press; 1 edition April 3, 2006
