It's almost done, my latest, luscious batch
Of freezer jam, which just last night I made.
Just strawberries and sugar; there's no catch,
Except to add some pectin. I won't trade
My product for a store-bought version, no!
I know just what is in it, and enjoy
The process and the way it makes eyes glow
(My dad's as those of at least one more boy,
Though really quite a few like it, so I've
Some trading partners, game meat for some jars
Of this good stuff). The happiness I strive
E'er to attain is made of this. My stars!
And it's so simply done I sometimes feel
That I am cheating, but the work is real.
