“Sonnet #17: Shall I compare thee to a Dairy Queen?” by Justin Hendrix
Shall I compare thee to a Dairy Queen?
Thou are more lovely and more warm than she.
I cannot know, for I have never seen,
What new adventures lie in store for me.
But from the window through which I have looked,
I’ve heard your music to be soft and sweet;
The melodies and harmonies you struck,
Would take a thousand Pavarotti’s to beat.
But more than that I love the various tastes,
And the atmosphere of vivacity and fun,
And the white jackets, cool as outer space,
Which like the ice cream, glisten in the sun.
But most I love to sing, make no mistake,
And to do it with friends is th’icing on the cake.
