Boots Of Midnight Blue.

My boots,

they’re colored midnight blue,

like the night sky

bereft of stars

and moon.

Chosen for comfort

for lined they are

with pseudo-fur,

just a shade lighter.

Warmth in the cold,

heat for my feet,

worth their weight in stardust.

Thick tread,

black and ridged

to grip the ground,

prevent a slip.

Not really water-proof though,

which is kind of a shame

as here we get so much rain.

Tripping and traipsing

and dodging the puddles

because of my insistence,


in wearing these boots

of midnight blue.

    Has a nice tempo and ring to it! This would make good roots for lyrics for a song. Not Blue Swede Shoes but Boots Of Midnight Blue. Yes! A good country song, it can easily be made into. Nice poem!

    Or could make a hip and name?

    Hello hullabaloo22

    This is a nice and descriptive piece with no errors that I can spot. We do tend to get attached to certain clothing items, don’t we? I wear this old cap that I’ve had for about 15 years, my wife hates it, but it still does the job LOL.

    Very nice work.
