Gently she kneaded with the heel of her hand
Loving the change from sticky to soft cushion
Airy and light white flour, salt, water and yeast
Mixed and moulded with tender care
Wrapped in warmth to help it grow
Once again respectfully massaging
For flavour, aeration and texture
Careful not to leave it overworked
To rest again one final time
Before expanding in the heated embrace
Sliced fresh, dripping original butter
To be licked and lapped up
Taking a bite, she sighs such pleasure
Oh, to do that which you love
And allow your passion to create ecstasy.
