Pablo Neruda, the Nobel Prize winning poet from Chile, wrote a book called Odes to Common Things.
Here is his Ode to the French Fry:
Ode to French Fries by Pablo Neruda
is the world’s
into the pan
like the morning swan’s
half-golden from the olive’s
its earthy aroma,
its pollen that braved the reefs.
in ivory suits, they fill our plates
with repeated abundance,
and the delicious simplicity of the soil.
