You Just Wait: Powerpack Poem 11 - Ode to My Cookbook + Poetry Friday

We're halfway through National Poetry Month and I am heading into the home stretch of Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong's  book, You Just Wait - A Poetry Friday Power Book .
Today I am sharing the poem I wrote for the Powerpack 11 prompt, Ode to the Game (ode poem): Now try to write an ode of your own. Think of something you love or enjoy and write a poem as a tribute or recognition of those special qualities, experiences, or memories (e.g., soccer).
I wrote an ode poem for Michelle Heidenrich Barnes' DMC challenge last month about something I marginally love to do: cook. (It was Helen Frost's brilliant idea to write ode poems).
Here is an edited version of Ode to My Cookbook:
