An Autumn Blessing

If’n you like maple. Do I have a cookie for you.
If’n you don’t. Do I have a cookie for you.

You will eat one.
The lingering goodness will fill your tastepoppers until you can not resist another. Whereupon you will vow to take just-a-single bite. Then eat seven more.
*
The rest of your day shall be contentedly whiled away with musings of autumn turned leaves, stacks of warm pancakes, and dreams of being oot and aboot with Gilbert Blythe.
*
This I promise you.
