Baking Day

Open up the oven

And take a peek inside

Just smell the heavenly vapor

That therein does reside.

Perhaps a creamy pumpkin pie

Plum pudding or a cake

Or maybe raisin cinnamon buns

You might decide to bake;

Or good old-fashioned whole-wheat bread

With nutty rich brown taste.

Start early on your baking day,

And moments do not waste.

For baking brings a wondrous thrill

With tastes of satisfaction

So sharpen up your special skill

And get right into action.
