Through all the world the purest pair of shoes
Are white, pristine as is our Lady Moon,
They’re soft and secret as a spun cocoon,
And sacred as the sandals of the Muse.
Through all the midnight hours they amuse
Themselves in dance, more graceful than a tune,
Each one as scrumptious as a macaroon,
Through glimm’ring halls and shimm’ring forest dews.
Above them, luminous, twin sapphire jewels
Dart by as swiftly with each blissful pounce,
While fireflies blink by on nimble wings,
And mice, and voles, and shrews, those scamp’ring fools,
All skitter by, a-tremble, to each ounce…….
