Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
I solemnly swear not to ramble…this one is going to be mega short. I re-read Where the Sidewalk Ends (sounds like someone was feeling a bit nostalgic last week, huh?), and though I’m not going to write a review, I just wanted to post two poems that resonated. Enjoy!!
Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
Eddie touched a troll,
Laurie danced with witches once,
Charlie found some goblins gold.
Donald heard a mermaid sing,
Susy spied an elf,
But all the magic I have known
I’ve had to make myself
She drink from the bottle called DRINK ME
And she grew up so tall,
She ate from a plate called TASTE ME
And down she shrank so small.
And so she changed, while other folks
Never tried nothin’ at all
