For a Friend
Exquisite, individually hand-made miniature pottery boots,
presented in a minature shoebox or on a laminated bookmark,
includes Friendship boots poem and The Shoemaker story on the reverse.
These boots, a pair forever.
Walk Friendship’s path together.
I’ll walk with you, and be your friend.
May friendship’s pathway never end.
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.
