I Want Cake!


Birthday cake, party cake,
Wedding cake: in fact any cake will do,
I love that sweet soft butter and sugar sponge,
It can be a Victoria cake, a chocolate cake,
It can be a small cake, it can be a large cake,
It can have icing, it can have butter cream,
It can have a jam filling and cream on top,
It can be covered with strawberries or raspberries,
The cake can have a cherry on top,
Or just chocolate flakes or candy sprinkles.
There're so many varieties available,
And I love lemon drizzle and carrot cakes,
Whether the cake is homemade or shop bought,
Is irrelevant to me, all that matters is it tastes good,
For cake is more than a happy birthday:
It is a celebration of graduations, anniversaries,
Bank Holidays, summer days, trips away,
And each bite tastes like heaven,
Everyone enjoying their cake,
For the party has begun,
My tastebuds looking for a slice of cake,
For year round fun.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
