Poetry Monday (kid’s version): Bare Feet & Puddles

BAREFOOT BLUES

It is that time of year,
you know,
when feet begin to sprout.

A little sunshine,
melting snow,
and toes start sticking out.

We see the first
cute blossoms
of little piggy toes.

And then
before you know it,
they’re popping out in rows!

They’ve silently
been growing
inside those dark, dark shoes.

Hurray for warmer weather!
We have the barefoot blues!

PUDDLES!
I think that I have never seen
a puddle of that size.
My momma said,
“Don’t jump in that!”
And she is very wise.

But something in my head
was fightin’ with my heart,
I looked at it with longing eyes
and knew I shouldn’t start.

But don’t you know that God above
made puddles for a reason?
For little boys
and little girls
and puddle-jumpin’ season!

 

“We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.”
