Food Poems

Food poems are birthday poems written for the person who loves food, wine or dieting. They are ideal for accompanying a gift of food or wine or a greeting or gift card.

What’s the best gift you can receive?
Food and drink because you consume and never leave
So to accompany your birthday greeting here
Is something I think will give you birthday cheer

For survival we really do have to eat
Well I like food so that is really neat
But the calories allowed in the daily count
Is just not enough it’s a measly amount

So on pile the pounds it does not take long
Very soon you find lumps and the thin bits gone
So out come the diet books salad and water
You empty the fridge of the things that you aught’a

Out come the scales you check your weight every day
You really should go to the gym to help the fat go away
Every new diet you scan hoping you will find
It will allow tasty food of the calorie kind

You get tired of feeling hungry and alcohol free
It’s pointless socializing so your friends you no longer see
You drop a few pounds so relax and go out
Back come those pounds it’s like a roundabout

Something in between that’s what I will settle for
As long as I am healthy I will not diet any more
I will do healthy eating and limit the sugary food
Because as I get older I know I really should

Because it’s your birthday I really had to
Choose a card with food on just for you
I know your favorite pastime is to dine
So I wish you a birthday as good as fine wine

You are a pudding man we all know that to be so
You will leave your main course as soon as dessert is on the go
So birthdays are special to you because as you know
A birthday cake will be around you just wait for it to show

You are always counting calories it’s a life long task
But today on your birthday I really have to ask
Can’t you forget about calories just for today
Eat and drink what you fancy (and I will pay) or (because tomorrow is another day

food poems for the foody in your life

Happy birthday my friend have a wonderful day
Forget about the calories and make hay
Eat and drink what you fancy do it with flair
It’s your special day so don’t give those calories a care

by Margmax 2012

I know you are rather partial to a little wine
So as it’s your birthday I think this gift will be fine
Top it up with other bottles it’s a long day
And have a great birthday as tomorrow is many hours away

Food Poems because they like it

The following can be used prior to an invite for a meal

Food food glorious food
We eat to live but it's also so good
It's a social activity and a comfort as well
Happy or sad food is the thing that is swell

Optional
So I would like you to join me in a birthday treat
If you can make it that would be really neat

by Margmax 2012

You are the icing on my cake
I love you so much that I ache
You are the cherry in my pie
I know my love will never die

You are the sugar in my tea
Forever it will be you and me
You are the cream in my coffee
I will stick to you like toffee

You and me, me and you
Life is good for us two
Happy happy happy days
Sugar sweet in so many ways
