Socks

 

 Dedicated to Nadia and Ayden,

my dear grandchildren who contributed to the poem

with rhyming lines and stocking feet!

Green socks, red socks!

Everybody loves socks!

IMAG4870_1

Perhaps the pink sock went out for the day

In any case, its partner is here to stay

IMAG4873_1

Oh glorious purple, how beautiful your hue

But the other is lost, so what should I do?

IMAG4876_1

The Green Bay Packer sock went out for a touchdown

While this one is left in the bleachers with a sad frown

IMAG4878_1

Oh, you with the beautiful orange and green stripes

What an adornment you were, with the St. Patrick’s Day pipes!

IMAG4880_1

Twenty odd colors of blue, who would suspect such a queue?

How I long for a simple, marching parade of two!

IMAG4883_1

Did you ever think black had so many shades?

My shoes are protesting and formed a blockade!

IMAG4875_1

Red, purple, green, yellow and blue

Too many socks, I do not know what to do!

IMAG4868_1

Now there are five wiggling toes looking at me~

Where, oh where, can the other five be?

IMAG4869_1

Their partners have left them stranded here alone

No forwarding address, no texting, no micro smart phone!

    What would we do without socks!!! I have three pairs on right now just to keep me warm. Love your colourful display. I’m always amazed, however, by their propensity to get lost. 🙂

  6. Hey, Celestine! Glad it made you laugh! I just wish that I knew what to do with single socks! Lara is still in Togo–in Mango. She is returning home in July of this year. Maybe you two will still meet! Happy New Year to you also! Many Blessings!
