How did I forget my shoes?


I've got my prom dress take-in
But how did I forgot my shoes
I'd like my hair-up with a pin:
Simple elegance with roughhews…

Now as it nears panic sets in…
Oh, how did I forgot my shoes
Oh where does one now begin?
Really, do I need any - hairdos?

I'm plain they say but beautiful…
I'm smart, and so, all I need is.
Some small white ballet shoes not dull.
And then I'll fly, then I'll whizz…

Like a firework with new belief,
I'll be they're beautiful prom princess
But how did I forget my slipper.
Did I just dream my lost coyness?

Was I really that, hot I left a path?
Of glowing, lily-white cinders.
Did you not spy my naked ankles?
…Barefoot running with your ardours.

Oh, how did I forget my shoes?
Simple elegance with roughhews…
Really, do I need any - hairdos?
His first to last kiss was it just a ruse
Oh, how did I forget my shoes?

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
