A Muddy Day

I put my feet in the pot the old fashioned way
Very cold, tingly.
Playing in the puddles, everything muddy
All the dirt on the floor.
Mother took out a jug and a dish
Carried me over
Took off my filthy pants, shirt and wellies
Put my two feet inside the big bowl
poured cold cold water all over it.
She wiped me up with a cloth as best as she could
and said: “Take a bath later!”
Clean again, I am sunny
Time to go find another puddle to jump in!
