In the past two and quarter years we have been blessed with four grandchildren – all boys!
I wrote this poem for our oldest grandson, Ethan, when he had his first pair of shoes.
“My New Shoes” is meant to be read aloud. I hope you will enjoy reading it to your children – and grandchildren!
My new shoes have grown up laces
My new shoes will take me places
My new shoes can climb and run
My new shoes are so much fun
Climbing trees and kicking leaves
Doing anything I please
In and out and up and down
Through the country and the town
In the daytime and the dark
In the garden and the park
On the swings and on the slide
On the bike I love to ride
My new shoes are getting worn
They’re shabby and the leather’s torn
I have given them so much wear
Soon I’ll need another pair!
