Oh, Sidewalk Chalk, we love thee.
Let us count the ways
You've kept us happily engaged
on pleasant Summer days.
With your help we've enjoyed
learning all our ABCs .
You've also led us to plenty of dusty,
dirty & scraped up knees.
We've had lots of practice at coloring in the lines,
But Mom's favorite part is the infrequency of our whines.
Mommy feels such joy
when we are creatively occupied,
If only sidewalk chalk
were allowed to be used inside!
