Aunt Virginia's Carrot Cake

Combine in a large bowl

Sugar and flour
Baking powder to lift it up
Exotic cinnamon
Savory salt
Earthy carrots
Shining oil
Toothsome walnuts
Candied fruit and
Eggs, complete in themselves.

Bake a long, long time
first fast
then slow.

Then share this sustaining cake all around,

As hearty and rich and sweet
as the embrace of the absent baker.
