Two Little Pairs… by Mrs. Susan Teall Perry Two little pairs of boots, to-night, Before the fire are drying; Shelley McVittie’s Two little pairs of tired feet Gallery In a trundle bed are lying; The tracks they left upon the floor Opens Make me feel like sighing. March 15th (2) (3) Those little boots with copper toes! They walk about the new plowed ground For the They run the livelong day; Where mud in plenty lies; 2003 And oftentimes I almost wish They roll it up in marbles round, They were miles away; They bake it into pies, Season! So tired am I to hear so oft And then, at night upon the floor, Their heavy tramp at play. In every shape it dries! (4) (5) To-day I was disposed to scold, For in a trunk up stairs I’ve laid But when I look to-night Two socks of white and blue’ At those little boots before the fire, If called to put those boots away, With copper toes so bright, Oh God, what should I do? I think how sad my heart would be I mourn that there are not to-night To put them out of sight. Three pairs instead of two. (6) (7) I mourn because I thought how nice We mothers weary get, and worn, My neighbour ‘cross the way, Over our load of care; Could keep her carpets all the year But how we speak to these little ones From getting worn and gray; Let each of us beware; Gallery opened daily Yet well I know she’d smile to own For what would our fireside be to-night, Monday —Sunday Some little boots to-day.
