National Poetry Month

In honor of April being National Poetry Month, I give you

Animal Crackers

Animal crackers and cocoa to drink,

That is the finest of suppers I think;

When I'm grown up and can have what I please

I think I shall always insist upon these.

What do YOU choose when you're offered a treat?

When Mother says, "What would you like best to eat?"

Is it waffles and syrup, or cinnamon toast?

It's cocoa and animals that I love most!

The kitchen's the cosiest place that I know;

The kettle is singing, the stove is aglow,

And there in the twilight, how jolly to see

The cocoa and animals waiting for me.

Christopher Morley (1890-1957)

Chocolate animal crackers! What is your favorite treat to eat?

Very nice poem. I like it. I dunno.. I'm kinda hungry for animal crackers now. Sounds scrumptious.
