Daddy's Shoes

Daddy's Shoes

A Poem by MsJewel

~~~

When handsome knights wore daddy’s shoes
and princesses rode horses too
in fairytales we would play

The kingdoms that we would explore
not far beyond the back screen door
in lands so faraway

Where flowers danced and lightly swayed
and daisies winked as we would play
and Jack, he had that bean..

Where castles built upon a moat
were mysteries; how did they float?
perhaps it was the queen

The wicked queen with magic spells
in her dungeon a dragon dwells
he eats children for lunch!

Yet I was safe, as you can see
I had my knight to protect me
that dragon he would crunch

Then on my horse, off we would ride
my handsome knight right by my side
the sky in sunset hues

But tomorrow brought a new day
filled with magic from far away
when knights wore daddy’s shoes

So very heart-warming! Could'nt we do everything back then the tiny tots, there was'nt anything impossible. Imagination made the lines marking the limits fade right away. This piece is a wonderful thing, it fills the heart with the old joy and exhilaration.

such a winsome and lovely write. I never had siblings but this one took me back to special moments with my daddy. A beautiful poem.

Love the rhyming scheme; it's playful. So is the poem of course! Little kids wearing their parents' shoes is a classic image of childhood, and you've used it here in a lovely way.

Oh, this sounds so much like my brother Joey and I. born 1 year apart and always together when we were kids. So much fun, riding bikes, playing circus on the swing set, skating on the creek down the street, etc. Thank you for bringing up those memories. Kathie

Imagination is the key to life. Need to be able to be the king or a savior in the games and dreams of youth. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry dear Julie.
