With Two Hands


Once again
as every year
the syrup once
again I make
the syrup
the sweet
the bitter
made each year
with my own
two hands
I add the water
I add the brown
sugar with my own
two hands I add
the cinnamon
sticks the cloves
to make the sweet
then add the anise
to make the bitter
stirring constant
dedicated made from
scratch made each year
with my own two hands
the ever rising steam
adding aroma about the
house to add a flavor
to the pangs of
fasting remembering
the favor of
love everlasting
done for us all with
His own two hands.
Anise syrup for
Capirotada
to have for a minimal
Good Friday breakfast.
~Miguel
