Chicken Soup with Rice

Each month is gay,
each season nice,
when eating
chicken soup
with rice.

In January
it's so nice
while slipping
on the sliding ice
to sip hot chicken soup
with rice.
Sipping once,
sipping twice
sipping chicken soup
with rice.

In February
it will be
my snowman's anniversary
with cake for him
and soup for me.
Happy once
happy twice
happy chicken soup
with rice.

-from Chicken Soup with Rice: A Book of Months by Maurice Sendak

  1. Susan, that makes me smile. I was in a production of "Really Rosie" when I was a kid, and the big number was "Chicken Soup With Rice." Oh how I would love a bowl on this snowy day!
