She Likes To Cook

She likes to cook.
Often, it seems,
and perhaps more than is deserved.
Like all good cooks, 
her generosity will sometimes be abused,
her culinary delights devoured carelessly 
to sate the greed 
of some as well sustained by Maccas.
But chefs so splendid, 
so gifted and so generous as she, 
enjoy the pleasure given. 
Given patiently and carefully
and willingly and happily,
and in helpings undeserved 
far more than what's returned.
She has fed me too her cakes 
and banquets of sweets and such delights
as leave me desperate to repay,
with dishes that she might 
enjoy as much.

    aha, I found one that I had lain undiscovered by me as of yet. So who might this wonderful cook be? I love to cook too!! Too bad I also like to eat as much as I like to cook, to avoid the latter, I must do less of the former!!

    Oh so true, my mother taught me very young a good cook cleans as she works so in the end it's an easy clean. Therefore I never cook with a sink that's full. Have to always start fresh.

    Excellent word play, my friend. You're a very crafty writer who managed to disguise the "bit o' blue" very well in here. Hats off to you, Red. :)

    Red, you are a better poet than you say...if anything you can show me a verse or poetry is nothing but spit out words, that i take no pride in... I like the way you mustered the poem... I train my cooks, at own my own restaurant.. your picture painted this poem gorgeously as you describe above...pd
