Poem: Holey Sock

Holey Sock

by June Nash

I’ve a hole in my sock though no one can see

Let’s keep it a secret between you and me

My foot, it rubs against the side of my shoe

Causing a blister, I don’t know what to do

I have no more money to by a new pair

Nor have I more mended pairs which I can wear

Just leave me alone, let me be by myself

I’ll wait all alone for the good fairy elf

He’ll repair my poor sock, or bring me some new

Until he comes knocking I’ll sit here and stew
