Ginger Bread Babies, Ginger Bread Pets - Poem by Amy Murtagh

And my imagination shapes you
Kneading you to need me
Like I need you so
Mould the clay
Mould the dough

Who are you?
I don’t know
We have never met

But I have faith
I will find you yet
We’ll make ginger bread babies
And ginger bread pets

    Clever line:
    kneading you to need me

    and a clever, fascinating poem. But I would like to know more about you, Amy Murtagh. How old were you when you wrote the poem? Did you find the person you were kneading (and needing) ? Do you still write? You haven't submitted anything to this site for more than nine years. (Report) Reply
