Empanadas - Poem by Juan Olivarez

A little old lady.
Rolls out the dough.
Then she fills them with pumpkin,
And cooks them real slow.

She sprinkles with cinnamon,
And sugar so fine.
And her empanadas,
Turn out divine.

Pumpkin empanadas.
So spicy and sweet.
Fresh out of the oven,
What a wonderful treat.

Nobody could make them,
Like my mama did.
With all of her love,
For her one only kid.
