Lasses Makin' - an October tradition in Kentucky
A day of helping make molasses on Dennis Whitlock's Green County, KY farm was the inspiration for this poem. The author says, "Loved it but it sure is a hot job."
By Phillip Coffey
After shortened days of my 'cane raising'
Arduous activities of sowing and gathering.
The day of 'cooking down 'lasses' has arrived.
The smell of the brewing has cut off my 'stewing'.
A ' quality time' family affair along with a preacher.
Seasoned up-bringing leads to the annual creation.
Generations of help smiling - 'Oh what a teaching.'
Sunshine and rain leads us to days of our blessing(s).
