Today is the letter G for Gumboots.
I dedicate this post to my mom, Berni, who has many memories of wearing these type of rubber boots, growing up on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia where it is often very snowy, wet and muddy, especially this year after one heck of a winter. She calls them her “touch the earth” boots.
My boots are very worn and old
They’ve been through a lot,
I wear them even when it’s cold
I wear them when it’s not,
Rain is not a problem
with these babies on my feet,
I pull them on and away I go
Come get me, snow and sleet!
Gardening is easy peasy
When I wear these boots,
They put me in touch with Nature
And in touch with my roots
They say I have no fashion sense
But I don’t care what they say,
I pull on my gumbootsAnd I’m ready to face the day!
This April I am participating in the A-Z Challenge
and the NaPoWroMo Challenge NaPoWriMo where I will write a post and a poem for each letter of the alphabet each day in April except for Sundays.
