I hold their volumes in sturdy embrace
thinking of many effects in glee to cause
Set flour and eggs, sugar and bars of chocolate
Preserved I begin with a second of dessert dish
A first lays warm and bound to my formula
The kitchen twits hueing on its spine.
At last, all smiles warm, a bond of live things
and I taste in my longing appetite
ready, she tastes with her kissmaking hand.
A loving day
