"the alchemy of four stomachs"
Not milk, not cream,
not even crème de la crème.
It was a delicacy which assured me
that bliss follows agitation,
that even pasture daisies
through the alchemy of four stomachs
may grace a king's table.
From "Butter" by Connie Wanek
Woman Milking a Red Cow, Karel Dujardin, c.1650
Wishing you all the blessings of Imbolc
