Ice Cream Delight!
Author: Marilyn A F Longfellow


Benjamin Franklin was the very one.
In the year of 1771.
While in France dessert did come.
What is this wonderful delight?!
"Ice cream dear sir,
I hope you like."
With Quill and ink
And much delight.
He acquired the recipe that night.
And sent it back across the sea.
To share ice cream
With you and me.

------- Author's Notes -------

In honor of Benjamin Franklin on his 300th year old
birthday and International Ice Cream Month.
