For Sophie, Ron and Jim
The winter weather arrived with a blast
“Polar Vortex”, it’s colder than anything past.
For Ron and for Jim, in their cold weather gear
From their hats to their boots, almost all they could wear,
But for Sophie, the answer was never so easy,
Her feet suffered so much, those icicles nasty.
So the Dads decided, with shouts and a holler
“We’re going shopping, to spend many a dollar”
Wee Sophie Doodle, has very sore feet,
She runs in the sand and the snow and the sleet.
Those little toes are bright pink from the cold
And if frostbite sets in, will do damage untold.
The shoe shop was open and they looked at all styles
Some too big, or too small, some funny, they smiled.
Finally the salesman opened up one last drawer
Look here, it’s the answer, will it fit over her paw?
“Come on Sophie, please try these ones on”
She did, and they fitted, and “Look, Jim and Ron,
I like them so much, I might wear them now
Then I looked at the colour” “Oh My!!,Holy Cow!!
They’re PURPLE, my goodness, what will my friends say?
When they see me coming, they’ll run the other way”
But Sophie was brave, and she walked out with pride
Now she runs in that snow, not staying inside
So the moral of this, when you go for a walk
Wear PURPLE, and give all your friends a reason to talk!!!
Quotation of the day, from Regina Brett
“Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.”
