:) Second Cookie? - Poem by Bill Grace

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.

    Quite charming. Your daughter sounds like a treasure. I am glad that she has 'second cookie' rights. Take care.
