How to Get Homemade Bread

I bake weekly for a friend. We recently had this brief exchange

SHE

Oh Dread!
No Bread.
'Nuff said?

ME

Cast off sorrow.
Bread tomorrow.

Here's my contribution:

 

ODES TO YEAST

1.

I don't know why I love my yeast

I hate to kill the little beast

I watch it rise

Before my eyes

And when it's done we have a feast.

 

2.

Now I know it's the yeast in the bread

That makes it rise up in its bed.

Yet I hardly can wait

For the heat to abate

Then I butter the bread and am fed.
