Poem: Ice Cream

Ice Cream

I like ice cream
In a cone or in a bowl
I like vanilla
And I like it cold

I’m going to eat a bowl of ice cream
I’ll get you an ice cream cone
Do you want some chocolate sauce
On your ice cream cone?

It is real ice cream
With calories galore
It is homemade
Not bought at a store

I like my ice cream
In a cone or in a bowl
I like vanilla
I eat it all before it gets too old.
