In Anticipation of Dessert

With favourite recipe, time to perform!
Occasion calls for flavour and romance,
Ingredients for colour, taste and charm,
For energy and passion in the dance.
With seasoning, perfume of spice and herbs,
The sizzling of oil within the pan,
The heat and tender meat, some gentle words
To tease between later and present calm,
Attentive watch to see that nothing burns,
A deft flick of the wrist and skilful hands,
A tasting bite delights a waiting tongue
Impatient to satisfy its demands,

The plates are filled, the first course of our feast,
To be left bare, to be enjoyed, a treat.
