Father’s Boots

From From My Window and Other Poem. Pine Hill Press, 2005.

I like to wear my father’s boots
and act just like him too;
’cause he is just the nicest guy
a feller ever knew.

He lets me go outside with him
and help him do the chores;
he’s showed me how to swing a loop
and ride my little horse.

I hope when I am all grown up
his boots will fit me then;
’cause if I am a father too
I’d like to be like him!
