10 Best Vanilla Ice Cream with Strawberries Recipes | Yummly

I have a memory of picking wild strawberries with mother on a sunny afternoon when I was just a little girl it was a vast country field . . . with many kinds of wildflowers swaying (I picked mother a bouquet to take home too) filling our baskets with the berries we headed home (after eating a few, of course) where mother washed and sliced them and got out my special ice cream dish I can still taste the sweetness . . . of those wild juicy strawberries and the cold smooth vanilla ice cream melting on my tongue this is a memory . . . I keep pressed to my heart ______________________ June 20, 2022 Poetry/Imagism/Vanilla Ice Cream and Strawberries Copyright Protected, ID 06-1466-777-20 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Ice Cream sponsor, Julia Ward, Judged 07/15/2022
