Students - the image of stained glass candies twinkling in a dish flashed across my mind yesterday. I'd just purchased a bulk bag of such candies for gingerbread house decorating. Later, I imagined them clinking together and catching the light. This reminded me of my husband Mark's grandmother, who always had a full candy dish in her house. I used to love seeing what she had in there...and so did our children! Grandmas are great that way.
As I wrote this poem, I could not help but think of my favorite candy poem, one which flashes across my own inward eye often, Valerie Worth's "sweets." I love the ending of this poem:
How they manage
Once again, I recommend this book highly for all classrooms, homes, and all who want to learn about metaphor, making each word count, and seeing so much in our world.
