Silly Footprints


Silly Footprints

I spent years
searching for a
six-footed camel.
I'd never seen it,
but I knew it existed,
'Cause I'd seen
its footprints
in the sand,
but every time
I got close,
I missed it.

I studied its
footprints in the hot,
summer sun
and everything
seemed just fine
until I realized
four footprints were his
and two of them
were mine!

I am trying to find a publisher or agent
to represent any or all of the stories and poems
in "A Pocketful of Rhymes".
If you know anyone that can help, or have comments,
please e-mail me.Thanks!
