Suncakes written by Joan McNerney at

Do you know how to make them?
They’re supposed to be light
bright and full of vitamin C.
Everyone says you just glow
after eating one. My friend
had a shinning recipe I kept
asking for. Suncakes stop you
from being cold, lost in frost.

I remember something about filling
golden pans with flowers, seeds…
sunflower seeds. Bake at
high noon, of course. If only
there were a suncake now to
have with hot cocoa. My friend
is so lucky wintering in Spain.
Who gave her that recipe anyway?
I’m the one who’s freezing!
