Ice Cream Cone
Ice Cream Scoops

Enjoy Your Ice Cream Treats

I’m placed within an ice cream cone,

    And shown with utmost pride –

And then I’m left to my own thoughts

     Deep down, deep down inside.


I’m a squishy, squashy, mushy mess

    If left out in the sun,

But I’ve been placed within the hands

     Of a certain little one.


I’m licky and I’m sticky but

    The freezer keeps me cool –

And my brothers and my sisters

     Quickly vanish after school.


A mother comes into the shop

    And her small child points to me.

I’m enticing, I’m delicious

   As I think you’ll all agree.


Small hands are clasped around my cone,

     And then a tongue appears,

And, lick by lick, and bite by bite,

     It confirms my utmost fears.
