Gingerbread Minis (miniature horses)
by B.J. Peterson
Gingerbread minis with cinnamon tails
Eat candy red apples from sugar plum pails.
Manes twined with tinsel and ribbons of green
Holly sprigged halters on each can be seen.
Hot chocolate blankets to keep toasty and warm
While snowflakes surround them in wintertime storm.
Silver bells tinkle from each tiny toe
Announcing their presence wherever they go.
They hang up their stockings for jolly St. Nick
Then kick up their heels as they dash away quick.
Leaving icicle hoof prints in marshmallow snow
Are they real?
I don't know.
