I've had a long day, full of three quizzes and a test,
I want to get home, take a break and rest.
Maybe ignore the homework for an hour, please?
I get to the kitchen, turning the oven to 400 degrees,
Grabbing the old recipe and try not to rip the page,
I grab my ingredients and set the stage.
Salt, flour, butter, into the bowl.
Some sugar for sweetness, and that's the goal.
I beat in the eggs and form the dough.
Into the mix, some chocolate chips go.
Lost in the process, I start to smile,
Baking is comfortable, I've been doing it for a while.
I spread out my dough on a baking sheet,
Then into the oven to cook in the heat.
Fifteen minutes pass quicker than I thought,
This is much better than anything store-bought.
Out come scones, soft and steaming.
Was I sad? Because now I'm beaming.
