The Land Built of Candy

Dear friend, dear baker,

think

Of all the blessings we could drink
And the lives that we could live together free from alert,

If we embarked today

To Candyland away
Where terrain reminds me oft’ of you, there in landscapes of lush dessert.

Candy canes and lollipops,

Cotton candy, gumdrops,
All the sweet ones and the tart,

They bring joy to me

As does our personality
That springs from your generous heart.

We could live in the midst of candies and bananas,
Colors, flavors, and aromas.


Graham crackers serve as streets

Which are lined with many treats
Such as ice cream cones topped with cherries.

Paths of peppermint are made

To lead to waterfalls of luscious lemonade
That cascade down onto rocks of chocolate covered strawberries.

Banana bread’s rich scent

Is there so Heaven sent.
Residence is made in gingerbread houses-

Everything gives happiness

And there is no sadness
For fun is forever in this land that gives and blesses.

We could live in the midst of candies and bananas,
Colors, flavors, and aromas.
