SHE LIVED IN THAT SHOE?
She has bought a shoe store down the street
Kids all grown now, you are in for a treat
One's a baker, one a tailor, and a few, astronauts
She turned The Shoe into a museum, quite a feat

She has lived in meter, aged with rhyme and grace
With wit and humour thus, she kept her place
Outliving princesses of tresses let down in abandon
Bare cupboards are now for viewers, never in haste.

  5. Hi Gillena, I like the way you have combined several nursery rhymes in this update on the woman in the shoe.

    PS
    I have sent you a few emails regarding Real Toads. I don't know if you have received them. Could you please let me know.
    :-)

  6. I'm smiling, Gillena. I have had quite a few varieties of the Old Lady's bare cupboard, but this is more exquisite than I ever could dream.
