A gift for the newborn
Exquisite, individually hand-made miniature kiln fired porcelain boots,
(available in White, Pink, Blue & Yellow)
presented either on a laminated bookmark or in a mini shoebox,
Featuring the Baby boots poem with
The Shoemaker story on the reverse.
For you who hold a brand new life
Protect it with your own,
For you who’ll watch it
For soon years will have flown,
By then, these little baby boots,
Already long outgrown,
Will be a source of mother-love
Condensed in boots of stone.
In the land of Undergrowby,
where earth and heaven meet
A shoemaker displays a sign
“Come in don`t scrape your feet”
For I will scrape your muddy boots
to make a ball of clay
With which I”ll make a pair of boots
to celebrate this day
A tiny pair of boots to bind two hearts,
twin soles for ever.
A memory of a path you shared,
a time you spent together.
Or they may be from one alone,
sweet solitude is rare.
And yields earth`s closest secrets,
some paths are not to share.
For those who tread this way,
are drawn by forces unseen.
Along a path prepared by Mother Earth,
as in a dream.
And souls who walk together here,
where earth and heaven meet.
May catch a glimpse of heaven,
In the earth beneath their feet.
These boots, once fired and turned to stone.
A memory of the whole,
walk you gently inward.
On the pathway of the soul.
