Ode to the Old Home Day pie contest
Summer's arrived! Just ahead lies the hour
To assemble your butter and sugar and flour
And answer the question that haunts many a dream:
Will this year be berry, chiffon, or cream?
On Carlisle's Old Home Day (that's the 4
We invite you to join this bacchanalia of pie.
Imagine how your friends will be impressed
When you enter the Old Home Day pie baking contest!
There's a class for berries, another for cream
Bake by yourself, or form your own team!
There's a category just for kids under fifteen
Where tomorrow's elite pastry chefs can be seen.
Whatever kind you consider most delightful
To deny us your talents would be simply spiteful.
Make an old favorite, or try something new
We'll welcome your entry, whatever you do.
So bring us your pies, no matter the flavor
The contest is an event for all to savor.
Roll out a crust; stir up a filling
Experiment with tastes unique and thrilling.
And if you say baking just isn't your thing
Stop and see us even if you've nothing to bring.
As soon as the labors of judging are done
Pie slices are sold to everyone!
