Candy Land Dance

Candy Land Dance

A Poem by Marie Harrison

A whirlwind dance of rapture














Candy Land Dance

As tuxedo

Licorice sticks spin

While festive red

Candy canes dance

Their twirling waltz

In the autumn wind


Bells of the

Cathedral will sound

As we embark on our

Dance of honeybee’s glee


Let’s electric slide on

Our tangy rainbow floors

Here we’ll begin to explore

Joyous rhapsody of

Gypsy folk love


Mingle with spider monkeys

Jive with baboon groups

Playing their bassoons


Let loose with kangaroos

Whistling Dixie on

Their shiny maroon

Cinnamon flutes


Ecstasy we’ll find

As peaceful

Music subdues our

Ire and pangs as volatile

Violins rise and fall

Within their string

And bow range


Hershey kisses

Will melt us

In our candy land

The poem is so good. Made me wish to find a band of Gypsies and listen/dance to the music of being alive. The violin is my favorite. Great description and words. A excellent poem.
