"Oh sweetness, oh sugar, oh dearest gift
Delivered to us from foreign lands!
Death to anyone, mean or stupid,
Who would prize you less, oh vital sugar!
Death to whoever would daringly venture
To make, without you, either pastilles or tarts.
Though weary, hoarse and rusty
By taking you, one's voice grows clear;
The tender peach and bitter walnut
Are both by you candied and coated
So hostile winter can do no harm
By making their flesh too tough or soft;
And the green pistachio, befriended by you,
Is turned into white immortal candy.
From Virginia and from Caracas,
The Moluccas and far Macao,
Others wait for cinnamon,
Vanilla, coccoa and carnations;
And that which modern noses yearn,
Like Helen searching for Menelaus,
Powder from Brazil and Havana,
Soft subtle and sweetly scented…"
