Fresh Green Pea Soup

I have an original recipe for Spring Pea Soup and it's one of my favorites. This is another great recipe.
I know there are those that don't like Peas at all.  You either love them or you hate them. So before I post this new recipe I'll repost a poem that I wrote about Peas.

Peas in the Kitchen!

Peas in the kitchen,
Peas in the pot!
Peas aren't for everyone, cold nor hot.
I happen to enjoy them, I guess I always did.
I just put them in some water in a pot that has a lid, 
I cook them 'till they're tender, like my grandma always did.

I serve them on a platter just as plain as they can be.
I melt a bit of butter then I turned around to see,
There are others at the table waiting patiently for me!
So, I offer them with pleasure, "help yourselves" if you please.
They turn around and say to me,
"No Thank You", we hate Peas!
