Tea Cakes:
When my sister was twelve and I was ten
Miss Early lived just around the bend
She seemed to wait 'til school let out
To bake these tea cakes that melt in your mouth.
Now I'm forty-two and she's forty-four
I've tasted a hundred cookies or more.
But never a cookie like the tea cakes
Miss Early handed over her back gate.
