Valentine's Day Poetry Contest 2012
It's time once again for culture's annual Valentine's day poetry contest. If music be the food of love, then cheese be the poetry of food... or love be cheese of music. Or something.
As always, the rules are simple: sign in and post your poetry in the comment thread below. Use any form you wish—sonnet or limerick or free-verse, and employ any muse, be it a fair lad, lass, monger, or succulent cheese—but your masterpiece must include both l'amour and le fromage. You can check out last year's entries for inspiration and read who won the judge's hearts.
Winning entries will receive either sweet chocolate and goat-cheese truffles from Briar Rose Creamery, or spicy chutney for cheese-pairing from Virginia Chutney, depending on how peppery their verse is.
Deadline for the contest is Friday, February 17. Please remember to sign into the site with your email address, so we can contact you if you win!
