A Week of Winter Poetry - Day Seven

Sunday, March 8, 2020

 Thank you so much Dear Friends for joining me for this 'Week of Winter Poetry'! For the last poem of the week I have saved a special favorite, one that involves cake! As I have shared before, winter is my favorite time of year to bake and try out new recipes. It makes the Barn smell amazing and makes it feel extra cozy.

Snow Sugar Cake
From my poetry notebook

On a soggy winter's day
My dearest friend came by to play.
We thought it best to make a cake
For when it's dreary it's time to bake.
Flour and sugar all crystal white
Sparkled in the candle light.
In to the oven nice and hot,
Meanwhile the icing - let's make a lot!
Now stack the cakes all nice and high -
"How pretty it looks" we both will sigh.
A piece for you, a piece for me,
We'll be as happy as two friends can be!
And a glance out the window will bring a surprise -
The world, like a cake, lies before our eyes.
For Mother Nature worked as we worked too,
To frost the landscape in silvery hues.

I do hope my poems brought you some joy this week! I was rather nervous to share so much of my poetry with you, but I know you are a Dear Friend and wouldn't mind if a poem wasn't all that great, haha! I don't often share my poetry, but I hope to share more of it with you if you have liked it. Thank you once again for joining me this week! Until next time Dear Friend!
