Princess Shoes

 

“Did you buy my princess shoes?” asks Molly

Every day she wants to know

Since she saw them sparkle

from jewelled heel to toe

 

And every day, Father answers, “No.”

 

“Did you pull some weeds?” asks Father

“Did you sing to Baby Lance?”

Every day he asks her,

“Did you learn your Irish dance?”

 

And every day, Molly says she hasn’t had the chance.

 

“Did you buy my princess shoes?”  asks Molly as before. ”

I pulled some weeds and sang to Lance

Dame Flora’s teaching me the dance…”

 

She demonstrates her moves

 

And Father says, “I do believe…

I might have bought

some princess shoes.”
