A Love Letter from Bosch


Someone lovely at Bosch sent me this poem last week. I thought I’d better share it – what a comment! Long, considered, amusing…what do you think I should say by reply?

I was thinking about sending a poem back to Bosch. While I look out my poetry cap and write something worthy of the Bosch poet’s time, perhaps in iambic pentameter, maybe a haiku?here’s the comment that was left on my post about that little Italian workhorse vehicle, the Ape.

Epic, oh Epic…
Lovely Epicurienne
Your blog has inspired us
To pick up our poetry pen

And celebrate your love for food
(You gorgeous bon vivant)
We’re jealous of your travels
You have the life we want

We’re picturing you on a Vespa
Or on an APE (ah-pay) as it is called
Travelling to France and Italy
Keeping us all enthralled

With your Epicurious adventures
You really make us smile
Which is why you’re our favourite blogger
You’re number one (by a mile)

You’re probably aware of us
We make household appliances
That deliver yummy recipes
That define food blogging sciences

We’ve seen you hangin’ out in restaurants
Dining in Kerbisher and Malt
We’ve made the compact kitchen appliances
Just bring your own vinegar and salt

But even before you flew
From New Zealand to old Blighty
We were making gorgeous products
More beautiful than Aphrodite

We’re also in the food processors
Which help you make tomato paste
Like your hero Kenny Everett
It’s all done in the best possible taste!

And now that you’re moving house
And hopefully have outdoor space
Our range of gardening accessories
Can help you customise your place

Whilst we know that you’re quite cultured
And know your decorative arts
Our mission is to develop technology
That wins over minds and hearts

…that power your weekend wagon
For you and your beau Monsieur
From brakes to your ignition
And the bits that make your engine roar…

When you worked in the world of auctions
You kept valuables protected
Our Bosch security alarms
Ensure that burglars are detected

We wish you’d blog more often
As your posts sure are a beaut!
You keep our stomachs growling
(You cheeky kiwi-fruit)!

You are true blogging royalty
In you, a friend we’ve found
So spare a thought for us today
Because Bosch is All Around (http://bit.ly/BoschUK)

Hope you enjoyed that (come on over and say hello on Facebook or Twitter)!
