All In A Song

We’re listening to Frere Jacques. Four year old says, “This song makes me feel something.”

I smile at her.

“Do you want to know what it makes me feel?”

Of course I do.

“It makes me feel that all my life will be happy.”

Chocolate Cake

In honor of a friend who made a cake for my birthday:


Chocolate cake!

Chocolate cake!

That I didn’t

even make.


Chocolate cake

from Amy Dear.

Chocolate cake

for my fat rear.


Chocolate cake,

so moist and sweet.

Chocolate cake,

a breakfast treat.


Chocolate cake,

midnight surprise.

Chocolate cake,

before sunrise.


Chocolate cake

at noon for lunch.

Chocolate cake

for Sunday brunch.


Chocolate cake,

gone all too soon.

Chocolate cake,

you make me swoon.
