What Fun to Plunder! Pantoum

an ice cream sandwich welcomed me

oh, what fun to plunder!

I didn’t hug her before the sandwich one time

  1. I. ADORE. THIS. I am a big fan of the pantoum and memoir in verse – voila! – here is both, and enchanting as it gets. Especially love the not hugging Meema before going after the ice cream sandwich one time – YIKES. I can so hear a scolding (but with love and good humor… no pun intended…)

    1. Thank you, Fran! So many wonderful memories of visiting grandparents – I sure did get a scolding over that attempted ice cream sandwich. I had to put it back and wait awhile until I got my priorities in order. Oh, the memories of carefree childhood and the way they come back just like yesterday. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment. I always appreciate your encouragement!
