Cookies: A Poem

Updated on June 15, 2015
Source


Warm and golden, they rise to greet you,

Baking to perfection in only 11 minutes,

Melted chocolate chips in a bed of flavorful dough,

Glide out of the oven and onto a cooling rack,

Soft and sweet, they hug your mouth with warmth,

As you wash them down with cold milk,

Everything is right in the world,

When eating cookies reminds you of home.

      As I read this, I remembered that I had a KFC chocolate chip cookie buried somewhere under my man-cave clutter of papers and research, so I dug it out and ate it as I enjoyed this superb little poem!

      Wonderful work, Erin!

      I once wrote a story about the wonders of warm cookies, Erin:

      Homemade cookies are the best when they are warm from the oven. It really does not matter what type of cookies they are because they really bring comfort and warmth to the heart. There is just something wonderful about cookies.

      North Wind: You're right! It's like the smell of them spreads around the house and makes it fill with love.
