Nothing Left Inside The Pot But The Spoon


Ahhh...
With a taste that gets more delicious.
And with a doing that gets more ambitious.
To leave both lips and those fingertips...
Nothing but deliciousness to lick.

With a taste that gets more delicious.
And with a doing that gets more ambitious.
To leave both lips and those fingertips,
Nothing but deliciousness to lick.

Simmered in the pot was a lot to start.
With a slow cooking that began mouths to drop.
And everybody fed on it until they stopped.
To leave nothing left inside the pot,
To dip with a sipping to spoon.

With a taste that gets more delicious.
And with a doing that gets more ambitious.
To leave both lips and those fingertips,
Nothing but deliciousness to lick.
To leave nothing left inside the pot,
But the spoon!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
