And the summer’s wintry breeze.
I like to hear the apples fall
From off the hickory tree.
I like to gather in the hens
The speckled eggs doth lay.
I like to sleep on a feather bed
Made out of fodder hay.
I like to sit and read my pipe
And smoke the daily news.
I like to sit by a cold hot stove
And shiver in my shoes.
I like to eat those beanless bugs,
And taters mashed up whole.
I like to eat limburger cheese.
Cooked with possum jole.
I like to lay wake and sleep
And in my slumber talk,
And tell some things I never heard
‘Twould make some people squawk.

Spoon into muffin cups and bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until a knife inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
Mix up a glaze with confectioners sugar and maple syrup and once the muffins are warm but not hot drizzle them with the glaze.
