bootsOde to a pair of boots
The sunflowers are drooping now
and losing color fast
And now this!
My trusty pair of hiking boots
seem a bit worn.
What about me?
I’m still upright
and my feet don’t look too shabby
(except for that crooked middle toe)
When winter descends
let me don a pair of ice skates
and dance upon the ice!
There is a girl in me
smiling, with rosy cheeks
not keeping track
of the diminishing light

we were tired after hours of hiking and dropped down over a sandstone ledge

and found the unexpected
