Poetry Friday: A Breakfast Song by Laurel Snyder

I wish I could conjure up breakfast this minute . . .
Maybe pancakes with jam, or an egg with cheese in it!
Maybe berries with cream, or a scone, piping hot!
Though I'd settle for oatmeal if that's what you've got . . .
- as sung spontaneously by Lucy, the protagonist of the novel Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains by Laurel Snyder

* As I post this, I myself am eating breakfast. It's plain oatmeal. I don't like jam. I do like pancakes, and I love berries. I'm a vegetarian, so I haven't eaten eggs in a while, but I'd love to find some kind of egg substitute, because I really loved omelettes!

Read my review of the book.
