Mix in some laughter,

     Sprinkle with tears;

A good helping of love

    But sometimes some fear.


Chop up some rhyming

     And rhythm as well.

Look at it bubbling.

     Breathe in the smell.


Add seasoning to taste;

     Check spelling with care.

Then give one last stir

     And your poem is there.
