The Smiling Sugar Bowel

I have a Blue Willow sugar bowel, snowy white and blue
It keeps my sugar for me ‘til I want it too.

I fill it with cute little white sugar cubes,
which come neatly in a row.
Unlike crystal sugar that piles up like snow.

When the cubes fill it up the little top sits on it askew.
They jumble up in its plump little belly
waiting for the coffee to brew.

My little sugar bowel smiled up at me
with its hat tilted to one side
Its the little white cubes glistening.
Its smile opened wide.

"I’m ready for your coffee now,
with snowy cubes anew
Bring on the steamy brew and
you will see what I can do!"
