gumdrop trees

have you ever climbed
a mossy branch to reach
for that ever delectable
fresh gumdrop
awaiting to be picked

can you imagine
using gumdrops
to create excellent
jams and jellies?

i can,
although
once melted down
your teeth will not
be coated in sugar
as it will liquefy
in the heat of the pot 
with all the other
contents
