Tag Archives: ice cream cake



My family is rather small,

Two parents–two brothers–that’s all…

Not much interaction

For outside inspection,

But her family’s having a ball!

Her party was a big crowd,

With everyone talking out loud…

Some got in more

While holding the floor

But nobody was there cowed!

Cousin Cathy brought Carvel,

An option that went around well…

Seconds were had

By several glad

That ice cream cake was a good sell.

Diana’s cheesecake too,

Diners tried to work through…


Soon mold-integrated,

It wasn’t worth keeping–boo hoo!

We sang Di. her birthday song,*

A day AFTER it belonged…

Parties short notice

Even with good motive

Take time for revelry long!

The next day, the other side

Of the family devised….

A luncheon good

At which Di. would

Be also pleasantly surprised.

* Di.   is short for Diana.



My wife asked me just what I wanted

From my Valentine…

I told her that a simple heart

And her, would be just fine.

I asked her then what she desired,

She answered back much the same…

Perhaps some treat or ice cream cake

Sugar-free, if possible, then.

Our romance is in daily life and

I’m not giving details…

Our love is from the Lord above

And His love never fails!

Not that we haven’t had our times

When romance was the least…

Thing inside our married mind

But we’ve learned to live in peace.

Maybe a single rose on sale

And a little candy box…

Will “seal the deal’ for one more year,

For you know this marriage rocks!
