- YELLOW BOOTS SING -




            A long time ago
            A little boy - he was only three
            Blue eyes and hair white like snow
            The sun was his playmate
            The rain was his enemy
            Drip, drip wet and cold
            He asked for YELLOW boots
            Yellow boots wondered his mom and dad
            Boys use blue or black boots
            No - YELLOW they had to be
            The boy in just three years got new YELLOW boots
            First rainy day the boy was ready
            Drip, drip wet and cold
            YELLOW boots are singing - they will sing the sun back
            Under his big black umbrella
            the boy goes with his singing YELLOW boots
            This little boy was my brother





            * " - A true YELLOW song - "

    I like that poem a lot, it delighted me. It also could be a companion piece to my poem "Walking in the Wet woods" Briefly you entered the world of childhood and for a moment i experienced being a child again. Thank you

    That reminds me of a little boy in a yellow rain jacket and yellow boots that I saw a while back who was acting as a school crossing guard. They are all so cute, aren't they when they are young? Maybe there is something with yellow boots that tickle their fancy :). Enjoyed your write, my friend Anne-Lise. Are you going to celebrate Thanksgiving with us?

    Splendid and adequate for a sound mind. This gave me more light to my soul and has stimulated a self- expression from me, serving as the fuel to my outburst.
