Mom was digging in the bottom of the closet.
She said, “Oh, this muddy boot. I need to wash it.”
But as she kept looking, she found only the one.
The search for boot two had officially begun.
Little Brushwood wanted to help find the lost boot.
So he stuck his nose in this one; Mom said, “How cute!”
Mom stood up and looked curiously to her right.
Little Brushwood ran up the stairs just out of sight.
Mom followed to check on where her pup was going.
Under the bathroom sink something was showing.
By its long shoestring strap he had tugged out boot two.
And that was the day he was given an old shoe.
