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?
