poetry friday

We had a great snowfall last week-end and the snow-puddles on these sunny days reminded me of lots of happy sploshing my kids have done over the years!  We always called their rain boots “puddle stompers” but “galoshes” works just as well…at any rate, hurrah! for outdoor play!

Galoshes
by Rhoda W. Bacmeister

Susie’s galoshes
Make splishes and sploshes
And slooshes and sloshes,
As Susie steps slowly
Along in the slush.

They stamp and they tramp
On the ice and concrete,
They get stuck in the muck and the mud;
But Susie likes much best to hear

The slippery slush
As it slooshes and sloshes,
And splishes and sploshes,
All round her galoshes!
