My Grandmother’s Kitchen | Bookosmia

My grandmother's kitchen


Cooking has always been my passion in life,

In my grandmother’s kitchen,

I learnt to use a knife.

Cracking the eggs, adding the flour and using a whisk,

My grandmother taught me the recipes- sweet and brisk.

The ancient secrets, the tools,

It’s this lady who made cooking cool!

In my grandmother’s kitchen, I learnt all I know,

These experiences helped my skills grow.

The warmth and ambrosial smell of this archaic room,

Vanished all sadness, despair and gloom.

At the end …. I would always say what I owe …

It’s this kitchen that helped me grow!
