Though my feet are slippered,
I'm not a slippery gal at all.
I am a stairway tripper
and going to fast, may cause a fall.
Rushing between my screen upstairs
and my household chores below,
happens uncountable times each day,
performed in a graceful flow.
The tiles on the floor, are hard and cold,
we don't have central heating,
so I slipper along in slippered feet,
with once in a while a beating.
Once I forgot to take them off,
when driving to work in the morning.
I bought a new pair of shoes on the way,
to avoid my colleages' scorning.
I used up a number, I don't even recall,
they won't last too long on my feet,
I easily walk outside in clay soil,
giving me high heeled slippers indeed.
Slippers and boots (the rubber ones),
is what I most wear at my little farm.
Pumps won't do when tending my sheep,
so I wear my slippers and boots with charm.
Like scattered leaves...my words will flow
