Strawberry Shortcake - Poem by Patricia Kelley
Um, smells so good! Strawberry shortcake; I love rich layers of strawberry shortcake.
I can't wait to bite into this delicious mouth- watering cake.
Um, whip cream!
I feel, like I'm in a dream!
Just smelling those large organic succulent strawberries that they're ready to burst from their skins, spilling out all their sweet red fruity juice, on my chin.
Large juicy sun ripened strawberries exploding in their skin.
Hurry, get out the napkins, get out the forks, get out the plates,
No need to worry about your weights.
I made a special cake for her birthday!
Oh, it's not your Birthday!
We can start celebrating early.
Did you bring the drinks!
While, I get the door.
Um, strawberry shortcake with layers of cake
Smothered homemade whip cream!
Just the way grandma use to make!
You made it all by yourself.
It's there on the shelf.
You cut it.
No, I'll cut it!
The anticipation of that first bite.
I'm in love.
Look, you've got it on your chin.
So, you've got it on your lip!
Look at her, she's wearing it on her hip.
She must have brushed the side.
No, worry, you can wash it out with tide.
I hope you're enjoying this cake!
It took a while to make.
Be careful and don't eat too much!
I feel so full!
Here, I'll put it away!
We'll have to save it for another day!
Ought oh! It's all gone!
Kids must have sneaked in and eaten the whole cake, it all disappeared!
Wait, you don't have any kids.
But, no fear, I have more strawberries on the way!
For another day!
