Barefoot Day (a poem)

Barefoot Day
Written March 20th, 2011
The robins have taken wing
The squirrels come out to play
The black birds begin to sing
Today is the day

The sun shines down on the grass
All the snow melted away
Nearly dead, but free at last
Today is the day

New buds appear on the bark
A gentle breeze makes branches sway
A worm is snatched by a meadow lark
Today is the day

The sky is clear and blue
The sun has come to stay
Shining on a world, lively and new
Today is the day

Children's laughter fills the air
The sun has come to stay
Running and yelling without a care
Today is the day

I watch all this, up in a tree
Smiling up at the sun's rays
My feet dangling and swinging free
Today is barefoot day
