Burnin' n Bakin'

A Poem By Libby // 8/18/2017

A pinch of this, a dab of that
Into the mixing bowl,
Then stir until you cain’t no more,
With all your heart and soul.

This recipe to good success
To many lives has bring’d
A sense of hope with smells o’ joy—
When baking tunes is sing’d.

The scent o’ sweet fresh bread, homemade
A loner’s heart can cheer
It saves him from the pit of gloom
And from the shame of beer.

So here’s to yous a message plain
To all who burn and bake
Keep up your work and think to put
Some love in what you make.

This is SO cute! I love it. It made me smile. :) you have a perfect rhyme scheme, and the rhythm is lovely, too. Thank you for sharing this! I love finding old treasures. It's fun to see how much our writing has changed over the years. You've certainly got a gift with words, girly. <3

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬
