An Ice Cream Hemiola

The ice cream’s here,
the time is now.
But I’m unclear,
my furrowed brow
betrays my tongue:
I know not how
to choose among
so many flavors.
Then you, spot-
-ting my behavior,
hatch a plot
and are my savior.

Our favorite three
of thirty-one
we both agree
on, then the fun
part, when we see
how quickly pass
three cones between
one lad, one lass.
By that I mean
that three for two
makes quite a scene,
with me, and you.
