Limping Into Summer

Through endless summers of our childhood,

running barefoot, all day long,

Through pasture field and pen,

we grew up quick and strong.

Some times I still go barefoot,

Though my feet aint near as tough,

And now the river where we used to swim

don't seem half warm enough

An unshod pony I rode bareback,

into water wither deep,

a farm boys diving platform,

there's a memory to keep.

It's a long time since I've dived from a horse

and I don't know when I will again,

But Sometimes I still go barefoot

Through pasture field and pen.

Of course there is a danger

in barefoot wandering , there's no doubt,

And my wife says I need to wash my feet

Before she'll dig this splinter out!
