Not All Tarts Are Raspberry

‘Twas o so many years ago back in the days of yore

When the princess won my heart

And all I had to give her

Was a lovely raspberry tart.

She’d had her fill of onion rings,

Of lamb and mint in pies.

I knew that I could win her o’er 

Once this I’d recognize.

There only was one way, you see 

To win her heart and soul

And this of course to give her of 

The one thing she’d extol.

O not all tarts are raspberry, 

As not all cakes are quince,

As not all men are handsome, 

Or as charming as a prince.

I hope young men will be forewarned

And take my sage advice.  

It doesn’t cost a thing, kind sirs,

Nor pittance, nor a trice.

        I get my best inspiration when I’m sitting or looking outside. Nature is full of so many great ideas. Maybe that would work for you too?
