Indulge

Fudge!

The stall it caught you unawares

and for a while all you did was stare

at the sweet and flavourful things on display

you bought a bag, and made your way

your favourite things held in a bag

like some sweet toothed burglars swag

coconut, cherry, vanilla and cream

all sat in a bag – your sweet tooth’s dream

but now you find its gone half past six

and you find yourself in an almighty fix

for the sweet stuff can wait – to a degree

as dad has made sausages for tea

so you wait for a while – and enjoy your tea

whilst the cubes of sweetness wait with glee

till your taste buds start to jump and stomp

and on pieces of fudge – you do chomp

In other words – Footprints on the beach

in response to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/07/17/in-other-words-the-beach/

beach sea seashell

three sets of feet – Walking on the Sand

Rendezvous with candy floss

Sweet stuff acquired – but only two pairs of feet

Smaller pair of toes, treated by Big Feet

To a Piggyback

Pancakes

#ShroveTuesday #Pancakes #Food #Acrostic #Lent #Christian

Stack of Pancakes, traditionally served up on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash wednesday, the start of the Christian Lenten season of Abstinence and Fasting before Easter

Perhaps, it’s

Apt, that a

Number of these batter-based treats are

Created on Shrove Tuesday, For on the day after

Adults of a certain faith, may ask their

Kids to forgo the

Enjoyment of their favourite chocolate bars till the evening of

Saturday before Easter sunday, when the Easter bunny has hopped by

The Biscuit Tin-Soldier

DSC_0696.JPG

Salford 12th June 2018

Sits on the window – awaiting his next

Order – arrival of supplies, a

Little late, but

Destination is assured

In time – he’ll receive the goods and keep them safe from

Eager little hands, – the precious cargo will be

Right where they cant see it

Treat

Salford, 4th January 2018

Treat

DSC00001

 

That Tin box in the Christmas bag hides something

Really sweet and tasty

Everyone knows its something special

As you don’t have it to excess

Thing is – you can have some every day – after you’ve eaten your dinner

Realms of Dreamspace

Expectation

Its a little thing…

Expectation

 

it starts with the little things

growing up as a kid,

you really want to ride the big dipper,

but end up on the small caterpillar ride instead

 

And you want the best of the ice-creams

you saved some space after lunch

but the outcome’s much smaller than the picture

those biscuits look like they’re munched

 

But the fellow behind this is not fickle

and he’s not as mean as he seems

though harsh it may seem at the start

he wants to fulfil your dreams

 

So that space in that tum is not full yet

there’s a place that is not out of reach

selling bonbons and fudge and candyfloss

that you enjoy walking down street towards the beach

A tale of Sweets past in the Window of Matthew Tomlinsons grocers shop at Lark Hill Place, Salford Museum & Art Gallery, by Peel Park.

#Acrostic #Sweets #Museum #Street #Children

 

Over the passing of time

Lads and lasses tastes change.

Damson Drops and Mint Humbugs go

Sideways for Cola Cubes and sherbet dips

When you cross the cobbles of the Victorian age

Every Mum and Dad smiles as they are reminded of

Each little treat – They were introduced to by their Mum and Dad

Tales of when a shilling would get you a host of delights

Smiling away at the delicious tastes in glass jars

Pick and Mix

Small Jelly Beans
Small fruit jelly beans in many colors.

Open up your bag and round,

your choice of treats for a shilling a pound.

Toffees and sweets from the east to the west

Tastes and sensations that’s surely the best

Bonbons of lemon and strawberry from France

Cola cubes and Chocolate if given a chance

Fruit gems and sugar mice and candied fruit drops

and liquorice or aniseed for your mum or pops

Don’t eat them all now, or else there wont be

Any room left in your tum for your tea!
