My Potholders

P retty sitting on the hook all ready to be used. O ven hot and waiting to see you. T he fabric can be cloth or yarn to make you strong. H old your shape washing after washing. O n call when I need you the most. L ove you keep the pan from burning my hands. D ay and night you are in my sight. E very dish is waiting for your caress. R unning hot dishes you pass the test. S ay a potholder or say an oven mitt we are both your friend. Date Written: 4/23/2020

What a great poem about something so mundane as pot holders yet so well penned and so necessary in the kitchen!
