A KITCHEN POEM
Canning Time By Edgar Albert Guest
Theres a wondrous smell of spices
In the kitchen, Most bewitchin
There are fruits cut into slices
That just set the palate itchin;
There's the sound of spoon on platter
And the rattle and the clatter;
And a bunch of kids are hastin;
To the splendid joy of tastin:
It's the fragrant time of year
When fruit-cannin days are here.
- - - - -- -
Lord, Im sorry for the feller
That is missin All the hissin
Of the juices, red and yeller,
And can never sit and listen
To the rattle and the clatter
Of the sound of spoon on platter.
I am sorry for the single,
For they miss the thrill and tingle
Of the splendid time of year
When the cannin days are here".
