The smell of toffee warms the heart
With memories of childhood days
Before the taste of Caramel
A more sophisticated smell
Taught us more elitist ways.
Vinegar, so fierce and tart.
Will cause saliva glands to flow
And pickles tease the tastebuds when
We eat them and go back again
And watch a new addiction grow.
Smells and tastes all play their part
To bond us to our memories trace.
They can evoke the strongest feeling
To set our other senses reeling
And recreate a time and place.
