I have to say I love pie
One that’s pleasing to the eye
Let’s talk about lemon meringue
A bit sweet with a lot of tang
The colors are beyond compare
Bright sunshine,white clouds; it has flair
And then the rhubarb, chunky and tart
I must admit this one has my heart
Straight from the garden cooked in a pot
It is heavenly, is it not?
A Texas neighbor made chocolate cream
The taste made you think it ‘twas obscene
Only a small bit of white on top
The dark chocolate flavor didn’t stop.
Of course I would be amiss
If I forgot the USA’s kiss
Of apple, tart but also sweet
With added cinnamon makes it a treat
All the fillings, fruit or cream
Wouldn’t make pie as good as it seems
If the crust was dull, soggy or limp
Needs a fine pastry with curled edge as a primp.
Now I’m craving pie🙄
