French Toast

on the first day of summer
find yourself four slices
of a rich bread
brioche or challah will do
inch thick slices are best
if the bread is a bit dry
this is even better
whisk together five eggs and
an equal amount of milk
flavor with nutmeg and vanilla
to taste
let the bread
soak up all of the liquid
keep turning the slices
place all in a buttered pan
top with sliced ripe peaches
the kind whose color
has captured the sweetness
of the sun
sprinkled with
brown sugar and cinnamon
bake and serve
you can add syrup if you desire
