Ice-Cream Cones


Through the wispy summer haze,
My eyes beheld the colors,
Of ice-cream cones,
Melting in hot sultry days.


My mouth watered,
For these icy confections,
In green, yellow and blue,
Creamy perfections.


My favorite truck,
Would jangle tunes a lot.
My ice-cream cones,
Would come closer a lot.


I asked the ice-cream,
Truck driver whether,
He would give me a free cone.
That would've been my rainbow dream.


So the ice-cream truck driver handed me one,
Without a charge.
He gave me an ice-cream cone yellow and large.
I bit into it and slurped and slurped and slurped it.

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.
