Stopping by the Bakery on a Hungry Evening
(with apologies to Robert Frost)

Whose cakes these are,
I think I know.
His condo is in the city though.
He will not see me stop to stare
At every croissant and eclair.

My running shoes must think it queer,
To pause with all these pastries here.
My diet has barely started! Still,
I feel a weakening of my will!

The cashier says, "What would you like?"
Forgive me exercising bike!
"Cream puffs, I think, box up twenty.
Wait...one doughnut hole is plenty."
Oh, whipped cream's luscious white and deep.
But I have diet vows to keep!
And miles to jog before I sleep,
And miles to jog before I sleep.

Author unknown - but dictated from my son's 12th grade Abeka Academy's Speech teacher.
