Drop Scones

The fun of baking with Grandmother or her sister, the watching, stirring,
smelling, tasting … Such good memories …

DROP SCONES     (Triolet)                                   

not Drop Scones!


the recipe came from Great Aunt Bee
who added things while I stirred
as a four-year-old at her knee
while she stood directing me
and I mixed so happily
following her every word
until at last we could agree
all was completely stirred

she dropped them on the griddle
I watched until bubbles hopped
and popped right in the middle
of each scone on the griddle
why it happened was a riddle
but joy to see how batter flopped
back and curled on the griddle
once the bubbles all had popped
