Simple Tastes

I once was asked,
Which flavor I favored,
Of the Neopolitan design.
Do I favor the chocolate,
The strawberry,
Or vanilla, of the kind.

The chocolate, I reasoned,
Was too dark and rich,
Too sweet for my simple taste.
By the spoon it was fine,
Only a bit,
Otherwise I’d let it go to waste.

The vanilla, I deemed,
Was too light and airy,
Too bland for my hungering buds.
I could eat it in heaps,
But not a bit,
Would enjoy it as much as I would,

The tang of the strawberry,
It’s hue of red wine,
Was much more of what I’d prefer.
Though I am more inclined,
I must admit,
Because simply it reminds me of her.
