Some of you have wondered where the children that featured in my haiku vanished too (https://robbiesinspiration.wordpress.com/2017/05/16/sue-vincents-thursday-photo-prompt-greenwritephoto/) and also which cake I will be making for my hubby’s birthday (https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/2017/05/17/smorgasbord-poetry-which-cake-by-robbie-cheadle/). I have decided to answer both questions in this little rhyming verse tale.
The children had disappeared,
Where on earth could they be?
Their parents entered the cave,
Afraid of what they would see.
They stepped through a crack,
Leading into another world.
They were astonished at the sight,
That before their eyes unfurled.
A world where you could eat everything,
The grass, the flowers and the trees.
Even the houses were biscuits and cake,
The sight your tummy did please.
They were enthusiastically greeted,
By Sir Chocolate, a little chocolate man.
And the sight of their happy children,
That towards them gleefully ran.
The people of Chocolate Land,
Where having a fantastic time.
Building a delicious pavlova tower,
Decorated with cream, lemon and lime.
It was the children’s Dad’s birthday,
Sir Chocolate explained as work resumed.
They were making him a special cake,
For everyone to enjoy and consume.
Work on the cake was soon finished,
Everyone ate all they could hold.
Making the most of Chocolate Land,
Which was never too hot or too cold.
Far to quickly the time passed,
It was time for the family to go home.
They would return another day,
Chocolate Land to explore and roam.
