Watching grandma making cookies,
Warming up the oven—hot,
Adding chocolate chips (my favourite),
Surely they will hit the spot.
Gently mixing up the batter,
Sometimes giving me a taste,
On my finger dough was heaping,
Yummy treats don't go to waste.
As she spooned them on a flat sheet,
Praying that they wouldn't burn,
Grandma was 'Thee' cookie master,
Surely I had lots to learn.
When the oven timer sounded,
Armed with spatula in hand,
Grandma hustled quick to open,
Then a scream, heard 'cross the land.
Seems while setting time for baking,
Reading glasses she forgot,
Now, poor grandma started crying,
For she wrongly set the clock!
Gazing at black cookies,
Guessing they weren't fit to eat,
Grandma sat and shook her noggin',
Knowing well she faced defeat.
Since that day she gave up cookies,
Showed perfection in her pies,
Making sure she wears her glasses,
For my grandma's very wise.
