Finding a Pearl
I walked through the brown meadow all
Dressed with lace
And suddenly right in my face…
Tiny tiny butterflies…like an orange and black shower
Drinking the sweet… nectar flower
Are they baby Monarchs? No…not at all
They are Crescent Pearls…clover leaf small
Next store is an apple tree—very old and tart—in a beach spot
Where, under its generous shade we would group when it was hot
Now I am a terrible cook—especially to bake
But I thought I would pick some funny looking apples and see what to make
So chopping away, missing the worms, and through tough greenish pink skin
I used a recipe from a box that had all the ingredients within
Now take a look...the crumble looks sort of lumpy not tasteful at all
But boy oh boy it turned out to be the sweetest dessert the fall
