Chocolate-inspired poem a treat for confectionary shop

Local writer hopes to have her poem published in chocolate shops around the country.

AN AVID writer is hoping to cause a ‘chocolate epidemic’ by getting her cocoa-inspired poems published in top confectionary shops.

Steph Lott, of Ilfracombe, wrote her poem Chocolate Temptation while studying creative writing as part of her English Literature degree.

The 28-year-old contacted the Chocolate Emporium in Ilfracombe, run by Linzi and Nigel Walker, who offered to display the poem in their shop.

Steph said: “After that I had an idea of maybe getting a few chocolate shops to display it so I contacted Nutcombe Chocolates in Dunster, Somerset, and they are really excited about the idea.

“I now have a new plan to get some of the big shops in London to display it, so have searched online for the top 10 chocolate shops.

“Once I get it displayed a few times locally that will be my next step.”

Chocolate Temptation - by Steph Lott

You would sing to me your seductive song

I would dance with you in your dreamy delight

You would be my comfort and cure my cravings

I would drink your deadly double dose

You would smother my heart with your smooth caress

I would lose myself in your lustful lure

You would tease me with your tempting aroma

I would taste you with my tingling tongue

You would persist with your pleasurable intrusion

I would surrender to your sweet temptation
