Gingerbread - A PoemA Chapter by N. C. Matthews
One of the first poems I ever wrote. Age: about 13
From coast to coast it wanders through;
Like drenching rains, a life is new.
W sing a song while wings aflame,
Find us calling on the other's name.
And desire comes, as ours, the pleasure;
Finding something in the other to treasure.
Back on earth we know the glee
Of having the other and they to see.
But many things are left behind;
What may be dull might once have shined.
So is it a lie when it is said,
That love is sweet as ginger bread?
