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.
