"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
