Christian poem: "Symbols Of The Christmas Candy Cane" by Ron Tranmer

Symbols Of The Christmas Candy Cane

by Ron Tranmer

Four symbols of the candy cane
are told at Christmas time
to remind us of our Savior.
Here they are in rhyme:

The Christmas candy cane we eat,
or hang upon our tree,
tells a story about Christ and
what He means to you and me.

Two color stripes are on the cane.
One's white and the other red.
Red is for the precious blood
that for us all, He shed.

White is for the pureness
of Him born on Christmas day.
Think of His name, "Jesus",
when you see it as a "J".

And when we turn it back around
a staff does yet remain,
to remind us He's our Shepherd.
All this in a candy cane.
