Candy Canes (thanks, Mama)

Candy Cane
by Valerie Worth


Hot wintry
Mint, striped
Round with
Fire and snow,


Sweet icicle
That melts
And burns
And chills,


And fills
The mouth with
Fumes of frost
And flame,

hot chocolate is much better when you drink it through your candy cane!

Crackling cold
On the tongue,
Like the word
Christmas.
