A box of candy under his arm
Adds to a man a touch of charm.
A smile of welcome he's sure to win
Who, carrying sweets, comes walking in.
And this is well-known, in the candy shop
Many flaws are hidden with chocolate drops.
Edgar A. Guest
I remember Grandpa would sometimes drop by our house just as we were finishing supper and he would have a little sack of treats in his coat pocket from Leon's Quick Shop. Grandpa wasn't much with flowery words, but he remembered to bring us kids a 'bite of something sweet'!
