i have found what you are like... (Ricotta Salata)

















Ricotta Salata (shown on toasted baguette with fig preserves)
region: Sicily
type: sheep's milk


i have found what you are like
the rain

(who feathers frightened fields
with the superior dust-of-sleep. wields

easily the pale club of the wind
and swirled justly souls of flower strike

the air in utterable coolness

deeds of gren thrilling light
with thinned
newfragile yellows

lurch and.press
--in the woods
which
stutter
and
sing
And the coolness of your smile is
stirringofbirds between my arms;but
i should rather than anything
have(almost when hugeness will shut
quietly)almost,
your kiss

e.e. cummings (from Tulips & Chimneys, 1923)

This is my favorite post ever. ee cummings + ricotta. It also helps that I got to taste this combo and it's amazing!
