S'mores -- a camping poem/a s'mores poem

Gregory K.

The campfire burns. It’s 9:08.
I feel so good cuz I just ate
Two graham crackers, and chocolate, too,
With marshmallow turned to warm, white goo.
A treat indeed, a dripping mess.
A touch of melty joy -- oh yes!
It’s bedtime soon, but I’m not done.
I simply cannot stop at one.
Because, you see, it takes three s’mores
To make a night of happy s’nores.

I'm posting an original poem each day in April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and I post all year round, because poetry is NOT just for April!) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".

Melty joys.

That's my official new name for s'mores. "I think I'm gonna make some M.J.s now!"

Camping and smores is like peanut butter with jelly. Its like the creme filling in a donut. It simply just has to go together.. But Melty Joys are just perfectly named!

This is a fun poem. I knew someone would save me.
My daughter is going to camp in the next few hours.
Sir, I am making a paper smore to send along with the poem. I would like your permission to include your poem, with credit and web link, on my blog.

Thank you,
