Candy Canes

21 Sleeps till Christmas


See the candy canes hanging on the tree

Look at the way they shimmer and shine

Dangling on branches of green, so pretty

Edible ornaments, a minty sweet bite

With longing eyes children wait impatiently

How lovely they are this Christmastide

Anxious little fingers linger ambitiously

Under candy canes suspended by twine

Oh to be part of this Christmas scene
