Gingerbread House

Updated: Jan 11, 2022

By JARON HOWARD, December 17, 2021

Flour and sugar walls stand together

Candy cane arches lead to the door

Gumdrops dance upon the roof

Icing and candy hearts adorn the house

Bright colors of red, green, and white


Not enough icing at the seams

Candy canes litter the front yard

Gumdrops stumble from the roof

Candy hearts shatter across the floor

Colors dull from age

Three years wash away

The house we built has collapsed

It was all just gingerbread
