My Old Mixing Spoon!


Christmas is coming quite soon
I must find my old mixing spoon
There is a cake that I need to make
It has to be done ready for the baking
My reputation this year is at stake

Friends are coming to taste my cake
I need to find my old mixing spoon
There is a cake that I need to make
For Christmas which is coming soon
my old mixing spoon I need to find

I am much behind work isn’t kind
Decorations are still to be arranged
Christmas tree’s lights yet to be fixed
The light’s cables are all messed up
When my tree should’ve been dressed up

I am much behind work isn’t kind
It’s a rush to get things all arranged
Yet there is a cake that I need to make
For Christmas that is coming very soon
I must quickly find my old mixing spoon

Time is short and I have plenty to do
Even the bagging and wrapping of gifts
Day's racing by and time’s flying too
And I'm yet to get many other things
Had I the wit I would avoided this rush

There is hardly time for doing so much
It’s time to get Christmas lights shining
My cake should already in the making
For Christmas that is coming quite soon
I must quickly find my old mixing spoon.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
