My Old Mixing Spoon! - Poem by Clarence Prince

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.

    I am tempted to use this as your 2nd showcase poem. See my previous comments, please.

    But I will look at at least one more before making my decision. Then I will have to go to a machine which copies and pastes.

    And you can start work on MY birthday cake!

    messed up /dressed up ………….. very nice!

    I have enjoyed this very much. would you allow me to post this in my May or June showcase for PH poets/poems on my PH site? your poem would be displayed with others and identified as yours. if you are interested and are not yet familiar with my “showcase”, feel free to ask about it and I can send details. there is no entry ‘fee’, no voting, and no obligation to you or others except to share your good works. I allow two poems per poet per month, only limiting one of the poems to a ‘rough maximum’ of 24 lines. one poem can be as long as you want it to be.

    I like the combination of repetition and rhyming.
    please let me know when the cake is ready to be served. thanks.

    p.s. I especially like carrot cake with cream cream cheese frosting/icing and walnut halves decorating the top. a little ice cream on the side doesn’t hurt (too much) .
