Red, white and green squares,
smeared with delicious leftovers.
mostly flour that leaves white patches,
for my cakes and cookies and scones.
you can also find rich, dark cocoa,
bitter-sweet, deadly and dear.
here and there splashes of vanilla,
whose flavoursome fragrance bewitch my soul.
there is also sugar, ground and powdered,
and sweet sweet honey and maple.
you might spot some eggs, I am afraid,
but churros can't be made without them, can they?
there has to be some cinnamon in sight,
that escaped from my carrot cake...or my lumpy pancake batter
of course, you'll find milk and cream,
can't leave it out of a desert, can we?
and here's some smeared butter,
yes, it is salted for pastries and toasts.
there you have it,
my apron's demeanour,
everything from sweet to sour,
on my apron you are sure to discover.
