Fifty Kinds of Cheese – Iceland

Capturing a bit of that great sarcastic Icelandic humor in this fun little poem. In case it is not obvious, “foss” is Icelandic for “waterfall.” Enjoy!

Fifty Kinds of Cheese – Iceland

“Fifty kinds of cheese
and they all taste the same.”
“The best cheese in the world.”
Iceland pride
of land
and craft.

We owe the sheep
for settlement survival
and our warm wool sweaters.
(They really do wear their sweaters.)
Warm in the cold and wet.

Seems like fifty waterfalls too
Foss, Foss, Foss
and hot spring spas
to warm the bones
Geothermal treats
including the tomatoes.
Hot Spring powered greenhouses
Cucumbers with every meal.

Coffee and cake
Iceland hospitality
and national sweet tooth
driven by hard work
and lots of books.
