The Treat

This one I wrote as a contributing piece to a family newsletter I used to publish.

It was summer at the time and I thought it was kinda cute.

The Treat

Wouldn’t it be neat
To have a cool treat
Something tasty and sweet
To beat the summer heat
I’d like to have a bite
Of a flavor so nice
Maybe even twice
If it’s what I really like
Cool and fresh
Can sometimes be a mess
But there’s nothing less
I’d love to possess
In my mouth that’s ready
To take it steady
To taste what it’s getting’
On the
tip settin’
to be
I’ll be
can beat
it Once I
eat it

Don’t you think that’s a neat treat?
