Were McIntyre, the poet laureate of cheese, still among the living, it is certain that he would have commemorated the epic (and tragic) story of the Saguenay Cheese http://www.sybertooth.com/cgi-bin/YaBB/blaylock/YaBB.pl?board=zany;action=dis...
in verse. However, in lieu of his poetical wisdom, here is Paul Marlowe's contribution to the small but growing corpus of cheese poetry: a memorial to a tonne of cheese, lost in the Saguenay fiord.


The Saguenay Cheese

Women weep and brave men sneeze
When they learn of the loss of the Saguenay Cheese.

But O that bold abyssal curd that plumbed the depths where krakens dwell,
And saw such sights as freeze men’s hearts, of which the cheese shall never tell.

Gone! Gone! Perdu! O mighty cheese, adieu!

Gone to the heavens or gone to the seas,
We’ll never know more of the Saguenay Cheese.

just the posts were hilarious!!

Cheese, cheese, o'please for a cheese
at deepest night, hair floating on the breeze
mouth around that precious cheese-
at morn' with toast, plate on my knees
please, please, please for a cheese-
raisin or swiss, havarti (oh YUM)
twas never a cheese that was wasted or dumb-
in my fridge, in my picnic basket, or on the road
cheese can please
even cheese you can squeeze!-
celebrate cheese, love cheese
it will almost never let you down
it only seeks the palate-to please

to be cont'd

of late i have a summer cold with a sneeze
but, that will not stop me from gorging on cheese
morning noon or night
i must have a cheese
gouda or blarney castle or provalone please
alone or with sandwich--melted on a steak
i cannot forgo cheese, not even for cake
it's cheese in the summer
refreshing and tasty
i will always love it--
 even more than pumkin pasty
please please please for a cheese....

cheese-never forgotten
never, i say!!
you cannot live life without it,
not even for a day!
cheese of exquisite sharpness~~
fromage of delicate sweetness~~
queso of the finest mammal~~
and flavor
you must always savor~
tis cheese, oh cheese
to me, cheese bring
even if it is simply by string

and the saga does continue.....


shall cheese sit idling on a rack?
ignored, or simply put back!
NO, says I,
cheese has its place
upon an open sandwich face!
delicate texture, or even as rind
always and forever be so kind
to the fromage
I suggest even possibly a corsage!
honor that cheese, I say!
add grapes, add wine
and never, EVER forget to dine
with our precious and complex friend-
our cheese
for if you please,
there is no reason for an cheese to sit idly by
no reason at all, and if there was I shall cry!
possibly even sacrifice myself and die...
for a specatular cheese-or even the string
if the cheese will have me, i shall consider offering a ring!
cheese is a love, a place in my heart
saints willing, we shall never be apart!

Had a wonderful time reading all about James McIntyre, which inspired me, with deepest apologies to Joyce Kilmer:

I think that I shall never see,
A poem lovely as a cheese,
But I am so happy to espy,
So many attempts gone slightly awry.
