Walking In Daddy's Boots - Quatern Contest

I loved walking in daddy’s boots,    
just to trample where he had been; 
to track the path of prior roots
and then return them once again.

Some boots were old and some were new;  
I loved walking in daddy’s boots.
I could have used any old shoe
but wasn’t fond of substitutes…

Grimy ones had great attributes,
they worked real hard to get that way. 
I loved walking in daddy’s boots; 
used for battlefield - bailing hay.

Daddy didn’t mind me wearing
if he could use them for commutes
and I didn’t at all mind sharing;
I loved walking in daddy’s boots…
