Translated From The Gibberish

I received my Ph.D. in Gibberish Translation, so whenever I need to pick up extra work, I make cents out of nonsense.

Recently, I pored over poems about this and that, stuff and such, errata and etcetera, until I came across one by a renowned 15th century poet, Emsch the Mensch. Although highly regarded six hundred years ago, little is known about her today, so I would like to bring her work into the light and share it with you here:

 

Fizzle drizzle mizzle

la di da quizzle

Folderol boombah

Bing bang

cree dalee

Clang

Co choc hot bon mot

Sluurrp yum!

 

Translation:

Baked Hot Chocolate, How I Love You

by Emsch the Mensch © 1414

 

Baked hot choc, how I love you

I think about you every day

The yum of soft gooey marshmallow

The slurp of thick, rich chocolate

The melt and twirl and tilt-a-whirl

Ecstasy on my tongue

 

Literary Analysis

Although she was writing in the early 1400s, what struck me most about this poet was her uncanny ability to capture and intuit what I, in the 21st century, feel at the very moment. I’m going to have to research her poetry further.

Oh, and while I’m at it, find some baked hot chocolate, too.

  1. To the spirit of Emsch the Mensch, what a futuristic poet she was to create baked hot chocolate instead of stuffy, old medieval mead or wassail. Bon Appetit to the wise translator and to all chocolate fans!

    • Thank you, Lily, for your erudite comment. You sound very learned.
      Emsch the Mensch, from what I understand, was the type who could have her medieval mead and baked hot chocolate, too.
      What about you?
