Red Socks

Toes meet
Beautiful feet,
Red socks, soft, cosy, form fitting;
Her mother was good at knitting.
Outfit complete,
Nothing beats
Happy feet!

Soft ground,
Kittens bound,
Feet bare in the summer heat;
Playing tag, children cry, ‘Don’t cheat!’
Laughter sounds,
Winner crowned ~
Another round.

Muddy grime ~
Childhood’s crime,
Red socks, wet, full of sand;
Into the bath, a gentle hand.
Dinner time,
Nursery rhyme,
Life sublime.

Inge Meldgaard Claim this poet

Born in Denmark in 1953, I migrated to Australia with my family in 1957. After spending my school years in Yallourn, I moved to Melbourne in 1970 to attend Monash University. Having graduated with a science degree in 1975, I worked in various fields, such as youth work, teaching, politics (with a special interest in the natural environment), social research, community development, and finally, information technology. I have also completed two graduate diplomas: one in sociology and the other in information technology, both at Swinburne University. Now retired, my last position was as an IT Manager at Monash University. Gardening, art, poetry and writing have also been life-long interests.I have recently published my first book, 'The Cicada', which is a crime/mystery novel, set in Australia, four hundred years into the future.Website: ingemeldgaard.daportfolio.com more…
