ice cream
This week I have a poem for you:

Ice cream is the tastiest, yes it is true,

in shades of red, or green, or blue.

I dare to dream of delicious treats

delivered in trucks up and down the streets

Its cold chilly flavor, goosebumps gives

and in its frozen depths, happiness lives

But what happens when ice cream trucks don’t come?

When there’s no vanilla, pistachio, or bubble gum?

When the freezer is empty, the store shelves bare?

Can you turn to someone, who truly cares?

to have a friend is to be one.

That means sharing in joy, laughter, and fun

but it also means sharing your cream of the ice

to be selfish is not considered nice,

so I’ll take that treat off of your hands

help you to be a kind and caring man,

that is what a good friend is for

to help you be better, kinder, and warm,

and look at this way, no effort it took

because I stole – I mean um… No… um…. Gee, this is a long poem. And it has nothing to do with Jonathan’s entry for the week. Absolutely nothing.

Nothing to see here.

Have an ice-creamy kind of day!

Jo 🙂
