Headed to the candy shop
Don’t know what’s in store
I got sugar on my mind now,
As if I did not before
Candy canes and gumdrops
Just will not
Do the trick.
I need to find that special something,
Which makes my mouth drip
Walk right past the licorice
Then something begins to gleam
My eyes grow wide, what a surprise!
I see the jelly beans











Banana and cherry and black and blueberry
So many different kinds around
Dive in the cinnamon, grapple with apple:
A symphony in my mouth
Each little bean has a surprise to be seen
Who knows what I will next find
Each little piece makes my flash my teeth
So sweet I might go blind.
The candy store owner mosies on over
Says, “Aren’t you gonna pay for those?”
I look at him once then turn around and run
With a handful for the road.

I loved the poem only thing I seen was you missed a few periods or fix commas

 

"Headed to the candy shop don't know what's in store, I got sugar on my mind now as if I did not before."

"I need to find that special something which makes my mouth drip."

"Walk right past the licorice, then something begins to gleam."

"Banana, Cherry, Black and Blueberry, so many different kinds around."

"Each little bean has a surprise to be seen, who knows what I will find next."

 

I just wanted to give positive feed back and help out other than that your poem was amazing, it makes me feel like I am a little kid again. :)

I like this poem it has a very child-like feel to it.
