A Suite for the Sweets [5-7-5 trio]
Write a poem consisting of THREE 5-7-5 stanzas that focuses on your favorite sweet dessert (see 'catch' below)! And yes, it's okay to have more than one in there like cake and ice cream OR cookies and milk... be creative if you want!!

The ONLY catch is that the LAST line of each stanza must all rhyme (the rest are optional) such that your rhyme scheme for the poem would be ??C ??C ??C. Remember, the question mark lines do not have to rhyme -- only lines 3,6,& 9 are required to rhyme -- but it's okay if you choose to make other rhymes within your poem. :) :)

Each stanza should be of the standard 5-7-5 format:

first line (5 syllables)
second line (7 syllables)
third line (5 syllables)

So, make this a SWEET SUITE... and impress us! Make us hungry! Make our mouths water! Just make us want to vote for yours! :) :)
