In The Middle of The Big City

How Far is Far by Alvin Tresselt,
illustrated by Ward Brackett (1964)
picture borrowed from here.

what if
a star needs a light
a helper needs a hand to hold
a human needs a name
a Stella needs a goal
a me needs a you

I enjoy eating cookies,
or biscuits if you are an American.
I love the cracking sound as I bite it.
I love its crunchiness.
I love its slight sweetness.

aside from those attractions of cookies,
I like cookies so much because of
the instant happiness a cookie can give for me.

would you be my cookie?
