A Dilly Bar for Two

Summer means ice cream!
That sweet-tasting treat
that everyone loves to eat.
We go to the dairy queen,
just the two of us together.
Ice cream or dilly bar?
A dilly bar!
They are quite marvelous.
The shell is hard but then underneath it is soft.
In the scorching sun, we eat quickly,
before they melt like a sad snowman.
Then winter comes and the snowman becomes alive.
That means we must wait until next year.
Summer means ice cream!
