childhood memory

Early Memory

The first birthday I recall,
I was three or four.
Aunt Marg the baker
brought my birthday cake.
Mom and my aunt, very tall,
lowered the cake so I could see
it decorated with red roses
and green leaves.
I said, “It looks delicious!”
They laughed at me
for using such a big word.
A bit hurt and mad, I thought,
How stupid do they think I am?
