         Ode to the Cook at Christmas

   Thank heaven for friends with the gift of cuisine
   I’d love to drop by - if you know what I mean
   Hooray for the chefs and the bakers and such
   I’ve certainly tried but I don’t have the touch
   Let’s hear it for cookies, for brownies and pie
   Turkey with trimming, great salads – oh my!
   Hats off to the cookers … how you have flourished
   My wonderful pals that are keeping me nourished
   As we gather this season to nosh and to sup
   We’re thankful for those who whipped it all up

--Poem by Lake Forest Park resident Cynthia Sheridan
