.5. All Scone Poem by David Threadgold

.5. All Scone

Rating: 5.0

Fresh baked scones all golden brown
With jam and clotted cream
Espresso coffee frothy whipped
For high tea what a dream

A platter full of sandwiches
Garnished green with salad
Piano in the corner plays
Another well known ballad

Torn between selections
Is it brown or maybe white?
Having cut the crusts away
Leaving nothing but one bite

Out came the fancy cake plate
Full of fresh baked scone
Six of them and four of us
I hope for more than one

We finish off the platter
Now scones all piping hot
I didn’t eat mine quickly enough
So one was all I got
