The Kitchen Protégé

You were the best

Right from the start

You helped to nurture me

With your generous heart.

So much to share

I asked of you

Your smile—Your reply,

It’s only stew.

Full of doubt

I plowed on

And alas there came—My new dawn.

Much preparation on the dock

While I keep one eye on the oven

The other on that darn wall clock.

Your notes of encouragement

Got me through my day

Your ever grateful protégé.
