Candy - Poem by Cassandra Jasmine

Chewy caramels,
Delicious chocolates,
Spicy Mints,
And peppery canes.

Milky-white chocolate balls,
Chocolate-covered coffee beans,
Raisins, blueberries, and strawberries;
All covered in sweet, suave, chocolate.

Oh, how I adore,
Chocolate kisses,
Velvety licorice (not quite) ,
And chocolate balls of nuts!

Candy, oh candy,
My love for you will never cease.
But my friends are sweeter than you;
Yet the price I would not have to pay is this:
Toothaches, cavities, and rotten teeth!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Well, this poem is to all of my friends out there. However, this is more or less dedicated to my friend Amy Kawai. She's a precious little gem; dull when left alone, but shiny once polished.

    Cassie, i'm not sure if i will allow you to use suave! for candy! poetic license aside.

    suave
    swäv/
    adjective
    adjective: suave; comparative adjective: suaver; superlative adjective: suavest

    1.
    (esp. of a man) charming, confident, and elegant.
    all the waiters were suave and deferential
    synonyms: charming, sophisticated, debonair, urbane, polished, refined, poised, self-possessed, dignified, civilized, gentlemanly, gallant; More

    but if i do allow it, then it makes for a lovely alliteration...........sweet/suave. :)

    Yet the price I would not have to pay is this:
    Toothaches, cavities, and rotten teeth! ..............this is clever, and true, as long as they remain friends and don't become enemies, 'cause then they may become worse than cavities in your teeth! ! ! : (

    i liked peppery canes for peppermint canes or candy canes.

    my favorite lines:

    Chocolate-covered coffee beans,
    Raisins, blueberries, and strawberries; ............give me the fruit; i'll pass on the coffee beans. are they good?

    thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply
