The Sweets Have It!
by Gay Williford
After Sweet Pea by Carmen Drake Gordon

The tiny, literate mouse weighed his options.
Will it be sunflower or nasturtium seeds
or the very tempting sweet pea packet?
The first two—of easier purchase on his shelf.
The latter, oooh, the latter …
a short climb up into the flowerpot
for a big treat he had savored before.
Recalling this special taste …
the choice—simple; the reward—delicious!
