The Cookie Jar

A house should have a cookie jar
for when it's half past three,
And children hurry home from school
as hungry as can be.
There's nothing quite so splendid
in filling children up,
as spicy fluffy ginger cakes
and sweet milk in a cup.

A house should have a mother
waiting with a hug,
no matter what a boy brings home,
a puppy or a bug.
For children only loiter when
the bell rings to dismiss,
if no one's home to greet them
with a cookie and a kiss.
