  • Winter is not yet gone,
    and the apple tree appears
    suddenly changed
    into a cascade of fragrant stars.

    In the night we shall go in
    up to its trembling firmament,
    and your little hands and mine
    will steal the stars.

    Pablo Neruda

    A man will love you if you take time to find out his favorite foods, and then do whatever it takes to fix them for him. Got that?
