:) 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.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
