The Baker


I bake bread
and bake it well
I knead the dough
and watch it swell

It all takes time
but that’s well spent
as Baker’s craft
has good intent

The yeast reacts
with olive oil
and the end result
is worth the toil

The proving time
with less haste
only seems to
improve taste

It takes four hours
a loaf to make
but far less time
to eat than bake


The ‘Tomato bread two’ (baked 150912, eaten 150913)
