Where the Sidewalk Ends

Post by Guest on Fri 29 Feb 2008, 6:24 am

.......... There is a place where the sidewalk ends
.......... and before the street begins,
.......... and there the grass grows soft and white,
.......... and there the sun burns crimson bright,
.......... and there the moon-bird rests from his flight
.......... to cool in the peppermint wind.

.......... Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
.......... and the dark street winds and bends.
.......... Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
.......... we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow
.......... and watch where the chalk-white arrows go
.......... to the place where the sidewalk ends.

.......... Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
.......... and we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
.......... for the children, they mark, and the children, they know,
.......... the place where the sidewalk ends.

* from the book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" (1974) Shel Silverstein

Ahhh . . . but you're still alive and making a name for yourself. Never be jealous of a dream, for you have one too.
