A Poem Good Enough to Eat


During a recent writing class, I brought in a plate of chocolate chip/walnut scones to start off the day. Later, I asked the group to write about what it was like to eat one. Here's writer Mary Anne Berkbigler's delicious poem.  

Salt, butter, walnuts
Even these three sound great       

Throw in sugar, eggs, chocolate
I'm chomping at the gate
 
I'm running right toward them
I will not wait
 
They're just like a magnet
My hungry tummy can relate
 
Ahhhhhhhh_______scones!!!!!!!!!!!!
