The Gingerbread Man
This poem can brighten up anyone's day and bring a smile to their face.
Okay, I'll start. This is the gingerbread man.
I truly smell incredible
Yeah yeah, I'm really crazy.
I know I’m in a pickle,
But really I'm fast as a pixel.
I almost dash out the door
But first, I fell in a drawer.
Luckily, I made my way Out.
Hit a dog's snout very soon
Tripped on a pie
only after I Told a big lie.
And then There was a big chase.
I was feeling a big disgrace.
As I led people over to the Mud hole
I fortunately Tripped in a puddle.
They kept Going still unknowing
that I was behind.
And then, I took a kick to the behind
From something Blind.
Met a nice fox that had very bad chicken pox.
Maybe I have wet socks
But that doesn't mean that I need to get beaten..
Because I am the Super, fantastic Gingerbread man,
Who doesn't want to get eaten.
The simplicity of the poems and the deep care and love for relationships
Delicate petals and soft flowers
Are cozy seats for bugs
Bees eat the delicious nectar
off the flowers.
Love these lines. These lines so aptly describes the nature during spring time❤️❤️
Takes the reader there to wonderful setting of a beautiful spring day with the shining sun, flowers, soft and delicate petals, the bees, the smell of spring!
Nora touched all my senses with the sun, the flowers with the delightful smells, the cozy soft petals, the thunder! Very well written and takes the reader to the beautiful setting created by the poem.
Wonders of Nature
I can imagine the scene with the animals playing by the creek.
Amazing how she talks about saying goodbye to childhood being a child herself! Time does go by fast.
It is so true and from the heart. Friendship is like a seed!
I love this poem because by the end, I realize that she’s making a subtle but powerful connection between the animals she writes about and childhood. I first visualize animals playing but by the end I visualize children instead. It brings nostalgia to the reader and is very powerful!
What a powerful and perfect simile to compare friendship to a seed! Both are powerful and life affirming, and I love how the author uses the word “deep” both literally for a seed, and metaphorically for friendship. Very honest and powerful!
A beautiful poem, because it transports the reader to that essence of spring, that we all know and love. I can see and smell all the sites. My favorite part is how she compares the petals of flowers to being cozy seats for bugs. Wonderful imagery and use of metaphors.
Beautiful imagery! A great poem because it transports the reader to that special essence of spring which everyone loves!
Beautiful imagery! I can see the sun and bees, and smell the flowers and spring smell. The best poem because it transports you emotionally. Wonderful!
