Carry On


Mom’s recipe box

Filled with family traditions

Enjoyed once a year

There’s her pumpkin bread

Cinnamon, raisins and cloves

Make it taste so good

Anise cookies, yum

Santas, bells, stars and camels

Frosted and sugared

Make enough for friends

We’ll need lots of hopscotches

They’re the first to go

And if there is time

Make fudge and English Toffee

Fill the cookie tray

Aprons, rolling pins

Laughter, music, heart-felt grins

Wrap up gifting tins

Every single year

Keeping traditions alive

She’s here in spirit
