Royal Chip Cookies
Mary Nell Forester
The Cookie Jar
You may talk about your vases,
just how beautiful they are.
But to me there's nothing nicer
than a well filled cookie jar.
Ginger cookies, raisin cookies,
some with walnuts, some with spice,
Orange cookies, chocolate cookies,
why, I think they all are nice.
And that cookie jar of Mothers
Stands upon the pantry shelf.
When I'm hungry she will tell me
I may go and help myself.
Yes, I've seen some handsome vases,
Brought from near or from far,
But there's nothing that is prettier,
Than a well filled cookie Jar!
