SHOES

Anonymous

 

My father has a pair of shoes

So beautiful to see.

I want to wear my father's shoes.

They are too big for me.

 

My baby brother has a pair

As cunning as can be.

My feet won't go into that pair.

They are too small for me.

 

There's only one thing that I can do

Till I get small or grown.

If I want to have some fitting shoes

I'll have to wear my own.
