Who Am I? (guest poet)

Today my guest poet is my 11 year old daughter, Maureen. She came up with this poem during my Poem in Your Pocket lesson in her 5th grade class. Thank you, Mo!

Who Am I?
by Maureen Magee-Uhlik

I wear a halo of fiery light,
I am a sweet delight.

You eat me on your special day,
I celebrate your aging way.

I give you great pleasure,
and memories you will treasure.

Who am I?
