Walking barefoot!
Isn’t it fun
To feel with your feet
When you walk or run
The cool green fingers
Of tender grass
That bend to your feet
As you softly pass?
Isn’t it fun
To feel on your toes
A trickle of water
Straight from the hose
And to paddle in puddles
And stamp around
Till your toes go squish
In the muddy ground?
Isn’t it fun
To feel the air
Blow on your feet
That are wet and bare?
Isn’t it great
When a girl or boy
Can have the thrill
Of barefoot joy?
