Mud

muddy, muddy mud

Mud is very nice to feel
All squishy-squash between the toes!
I’d rather wade in wiggly mud
Than smell a yellow rose.
Nobody else but the rosebush knows
How nice mud feels
Between the toes.

Polly Chase Boyden

This poem was a favorite of my mother’s. She told me so, when I was a child. My neat-as-a-pin, every-hair-in-place, matching-purse-and-lipstick mother. I’ve marveled at the revelation ever since!

How’s the weather where you live?
