Poetry Friday: National Donut Day

Today is National Donut Day.   This event started in 1938 by the Salvation Army to help the needy during the Depression while honoring women who served donuts to soldiers in World War I.

So to honor National Donut Day:

Which to choose:
French crueller, maple?
mouth waters
I bite into a morsel
toroidal heaven


What’s your favorite donut?

Poetry Friday is held at Carol’s Corner.

Happy Reading.

  1. Oh, love that new word. I tried it out on the math teachers & they knew! However, someone else knew about National Donut Day and with that and a steady stream of food here at the end of the school year & lots of open houses are happening, I think I need to do some serious walking! We have some local places I am fond of, & I still choose plain glazed more than anything else. Thanks for telling the history too, & ‘toroidal heaven’ is wonderful.

  2. I looked up toroidal too, and then looked up torus. And now I know. 🙂 Thanks for this!
