Bobby Sox and Penny Loafers DWM

Bobby sox and penny loafers, donned the feet of the 1950 teens as they danced away at the sock hop, slipping and sliding doing the bop. Pony tails swayed with the beat, as poodle skirts twirled with the flow brightly colored neck scarfs caught the sweat, crewcut fellas led their dates without fret. Lights flashed on and off near closing time, couples slowed down with a waltz, hugging close and being much in love, cooing sweet nothings like a loving dove. February 29, 2020 "Kim Rodriguez DWM Contest"

Congratulations Sonia. I grew up when you did. I won in the contest, too. My poem is In the Still of the Night.... I loved my poodle skirt. May sound silly to younger people, but sure beats the ripped jeans worn today. I miss those days... Panagiota Romios

Oh, this is great, Sonia, for the contest. I forgotten about the penny loafers that I loved when I was growing up. I still wear the same style of shoe except no place to insert a coin.
