Poet’s Breakfast #4 – Suzanne Jones

Time for that early morning wake up call! It’s Poet’s Breakfast with Suzanne Jones…

 

Wake up mum, Weetbix time! 2 year olds have no time for pancakes unless its second breakfast and mums always need time for coffee.

Pancakes

maiden sleepover voyage
her father at the helm
a Sunday breakfast

pancakes

oblivious 
I began to seep
maple trees

saplings at least
until
walling off

at sixteen leagues
I baked
my own

called my father to table
called my mother to table
called my sister to table

pancakes

tomorrow I’ll call my son
and husband to table
we shall sit

a veritable sugar house
and eat
our own.
