Priestess and Warrior

I heard this poem on the album "Wake the Dragon" by Môr Gwyddelig. I thought it was really pretty, but couldn't find lyrics anywhere. So, I trascribed my own. Here they are:

Poached Pears

One of my favorite desserts to make is poached pears with mulled wine syrup. is delicious.

1.5c dry red wine
1c water
.5c packed dark brown sugar
1 3in cinnamon stick
10 black peppercorns
3 tbsp honey
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 bosc pears

Combine all but pears in a 3qrt microwave-safe dish and microwave 5min on high, or until mixture boils. While this is going on, peel the pears and cut off the tops just as they begin to flare out. Hollow out the fatter section and cut a small amount off the bottom so that they sit flat. They should look kinda like this:
Mm, tasty pear cross--ection...
Add the pears to the wine mixture, cover, and microwave on high for 10min, or until the pears are tender. Cool in the dish for 5min. Remove the pears with a slotted spoon and place in saucers.
Microwave the wine sauce mix on high for 5min, or til reduced to 1c. Spoon a quarter of the sauce over each pear.

In the past I've filled the pears with nuts and caramel, but I suspect there is something better. I do recommend melting some dark chocolate and drizzling it over them, though.
