Cheeses, Oh Cheeses, You Delight Me So!

This piece below was written in response to this homework prompt at last week’s writing group. I don’t always do the homework, but when it said cheese, I immediately wanyed to write something about my favourite kind of cheese, and what better form to do this, than the ACROSTIC poetry form, where the relevant word is spelt out with the first letter of each line of the poem!

Cheddar Cheese, Oh, Yes Please
Can anyone imagine a finer dairy treat?
Has there ever been a tastier cheese?
Every savoury dish would benefit, (its
Doubtless to my mind), from this
Delightful form of cheese! Matured
And with a bite that pleases, oh yes, so
Ripe, and delightful, you tasty snack!

So there you go, do you have a particular kind of that particularly tempts you? Tell me more, I’d love to read about it!
