Baby Boots

For you who hold a brand new life
Protect it with your own,

For you who’ll watch it journey forth
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.

The Shoemaker.

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.
