Welcome to Scandinavian Baking
The Muffin Lady
by Sharon Nothnagel
In Chocorua, by the side of the road
An array of muffins and breads are sold
By a wonderful lady who bakes Scandinavian
Enjoyed by many a hungry Tamworthian
Applesauce-raisin or poppyseed-lemon
Cardamom, sourcream, bran – it’s like heaven.
We sip at her coffee, and also at tea
And we munch chocolate donuts with hints of cherry.
So, what could be nicer? We send up a cheer
For our dear muffin lady – we’re glad that she’s here.
And a little bird told us her birthday’s today,
So, we’ll come and eat muffins and shout out hooray!
For Betty, for Betty – we love her so much
Not just for her muffins but for her nice touch.
And her caring concern and bright smiling way
So today we are here to say, Happy Birthday!!!
