Don't you wish
these little shoes
could tell you where
A first step?
A puddle jumped?
Little games played
No one's here to
shoes from time past
I've adopted some mother's keepsake from long, long ago. These very small button-shoes
are probably sized for a little one's first steps. They do show
minimal wear on the soles.
All the buttons are still in place.
And tucked in a tissue down deep in one shoe
was an extra little button.
Where do you think these little shoes have been?
