The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.
I sat there with Tina.
We sat there, we two.
And I said, “How I wish
We had something to do!”
So we went to the kitchen and we pulled out all the stuff.
We pulled out the bowls and the spoons and the fluff.
We pulled out the sugar; the brown and the white.
The vanilla, the eggs and turned on the light.
The flour was just right, the soda to make it fizz.
And don’t forget the chips, chocolate that is.
We mixed it all up, Tina and I.
We mixed it!
And we dipped it and baked it.
And we smiled just a bit.
