Oven work's not hasty.
Beatrice baked to beget
And sometimes to just forget.
Crullers, rolls and seed-topped bread
Ready, warm and good they said.

Some to buy the best beignet.
Still, each day she thought of him
In uniform he was trim.

Gone too fast. It was too late.
The shop's goods, her life instead
Begetting each day's fresh bread.
Her smiles back at those who buy
Hide her grief for dreams awry.
