Bread

Bread – the food of the world
Every nation,
Every tribe has a bread
Bread
Swedish loaves dark with rye
American white loaves of sourdough,
Tortillas in Mexico made of corn.

Bread – the staple of every clime
Every country;
Every village has a bread.
Bread
French baquette, English scone,
Middle east pita and Jewish challah,
India’s chapati and Irish Soda.

Bread – A food of life,
Ever eaten
Where people find comfort
Bread
At humble kitchen tables, in richest homes,
Served in the soup kitchens, carried in the streets
Jesus served his friends bread and spoke of life.
