sidewalk ends

 

I don’t get you

And you don’t get me

It’s ok

Around and around we go

 

Shel Silverstein knows where the sidewalk ends

And that’s where we begin

 

I am right-brained

You aren’t the creative type

I can’t solve complex equations

It’s ok

Around and around we go

 

Shel Silverstein knows where the sidewalk ends

And that’s where the math meets the inspiration

 

I always seem to lose my cool

But you are as a cool as cucumber

Around and around we go

 

Shel Silverstein knows where the sidewalk ends

And that’s where peace comes to me against all odds

 

The wind is like spearmint

Where the daisies grow in the pavement

Around and around we go

Shel Silverstein is genius

Every poem can  be a song

Every song can be a poem

Let’s sing together

While around and around we go

(The wind and daisies lines have elements by Shel Silverstein’s poem: Where the Sidewalk Ends)

    1. Awesome to hear. Yeah, Shel Silverstein has influenced my poetry almost as Dr. Seuss has as a child. 🙂 Thanks for reading.
