Down the road she’d scurry, sometimes she’d even hop
She wanted to be the first, to grab her favorite tart
One covered with whipped cream, and raspberries, in a heart
Every day, ole Gertie, would try to sell her another
But Rosie, would have none of it, this was for her mother
Perhaps a blueberry tart, or prune, how would that do?
Pineapple, or strawberry, or maybe something new?
How about blackberry, or maybe she’d like to try this?
No, she said, shaking her head, the raspberries, she’d insist!
Gertie understood, as Rosie eyed the confectionery
“All tarts may be yummy, but not all tarts are raspberry”
