Original Poetry: Candy Corn Nursery Rhyme

Candy corn, candy corn,

sitting on the wall

Dangling his legs,

so he won’t fall.

Will he fall apart

Or land on his feet?

Will his fall be messy,

Or will it be neat?

He jumps off the wall,

Landing on his rump

Bouncing from room to room

Thumpity thump thump.

Bringing joy to kids of all ages

As he inspires me

To put words on pages.

Setting my creative spirit free!

This poem was inspired by a candy corn stuffy I was taught to make in my ACB crafters crochet class, and my discussion with my fellow writing warriors for jesus in our boot camp this morning.
