Egg and bacon pie, and sauce
Boiled eggs on Sunday
Pancakes from a cast iron pan that I hope to copy, one day?
Playing euchre with my mother
As she juggled house and kin
Nibbling imperfect street stall fare as the best is wrapped in cling
Teaching calves to tie and walk
In frosty plateaued days
Leading, loading, feeding, floating to show and grande parade
But as a boy and young man the best I learnt from mum
Was when I asked "can I go", the reply came "is it done!"
