The Gingerbread House

Come and live with me
be my spouse
savoring chocolate kisses
in our own gingerbread house.

With four walls
a roof, a door, a window and swing
a pure culinary delight
painted with the sweetest of icings!

We will add more rooms
scented with ginger delight
add love stories
lovely as a ginger bite!

Built by the candy cane rainbow
there will be a vanilla side
and a chocolate side to show
such a lovely home for the holidays!

You and I in our gingerbread home
on a street of peppermint
in the front yard a gummy drop gnome
with pineapple face and blueberry eyes...

    Hi Ken, had to drop in, you know me and food right? Well my friend, let me just say if it was a real house you'd be homeless if I was around. I really liked the way you formed this culinary vision. Two o'clock in the morning and I'm heading for the kitchen. Really liked this one partner. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.
