:) Second Cookie?


Our daughter coming to this land
Of late age for a child
Knows well lessons from her native land,
So an offering of cookies to her
Helped me understand a great truth missed
In the saga of my own - oh, so American development -
That the right to a second cookie
Is not always a matter of assumption.

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth

Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
