POETRY—How Sweet It Is!

Last Monday, I posted poems about spring flowers—and noted how nice it is to see their bright colors in the garden after winter gives way to spring. Today, I thought I’d post three original poems about some colorful candies that bring bright tastes to our tongues


April showers
Bring May flowers--
Showers of lemon drops
Help grow my lollipops.


Lemon, lime, and tangerine
Cherry, orange, wintergreen
Grape, vanilla, licorice
Any flavor that I wish
Sitting in my candy dish
Every color looks delish!


Gummi worms
Yummy worms
Wiggle in my tummy worms.
Jellied jigglers in my mouth—
I take three bites.
They’re heading south.
Yummy worms
Gummi worms
Wriggle in my tummy worms.
Gooey chewy
Dandy worms
How I love these
Candy worms!


Book Giveaway
As in past years, I’ll be giving away a children’s poetry book at Wild Rose Reader every week during the month of April. If you leave a comment at one of my poetry posts this week (April 1-6), I’ll enter your name into the drawing for a poetry book. If you leave comments at two posts, I'll enter your name twice...and so on. I’ll announce the winner of this week’s giveaway on Sunday, April 7th.

This week’s prize from Wild Rose Reader will be a copy of
Lemonade and Other Poems Squeezed from a Single Word, which was written by Bob Raczka and illustrated by Nancy Doniger.

It sounds as if you have a very interesting household, Elaine, growing lollipops and wriggley worms in the tummy. I have one dish of mints that my older granddaughter likes. The younger, almost the same age as yours, hasn't discovered candy yet, but I know she will. Thanks for these fun poems.

I love JELLYBEANS - the poem *and* the candy.

Coincidentally I'm also reading LEMONADE this weekend, and loving that, too.

Candy poems? I love it! Maybe I should write an ode to Cadbury Creme Eggs. Thanks for shating, Elaine.

Jellybeans and gummi worms are such fun poems. I can't wait to share them with my granddaughter! I bet your little Julia loves her grandma's poems! : )
