Observation of item for sale along my drive home
| Shadows for Sale
There is a house I pass each day,
On the lawn an interesting sign.
“Shadows for Sale. Anything you want.”
Beside it stands a shadow of a child.
On the porch a cowboy leaning
In the grass is one of a cat.
I find this most unusual
Why didn’t I think of that?
What a unique idea this was,
So simple and so very quaint.
A piece of wood and nothing more
Except for a can of black paint.
Each shinny sign is different
A guitar, a barrel or a clover.
Captures the imagination
Even the old lady bending over.
They brighten up a porch
Making passers stop and stare.
These little wooden soldiers
With their own little flair.
Tells a little something
Of those who live within.
These pleasant little houses
Where shadows invite you in.
