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.

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

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.
