Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 663 (That Corner Store)



It was always filled with stir-
That neighborhood store, on the corner.
.
Mother would always send Sandy
to buy some eggs-
She’d walk over there with her
toothpick legs.
.
Or perhaps one day, it might be
some bread-
Sandy would get whatever Mother
wanted and said.
.
The best part for Sandy-
Of course, was looking at that ja,r of
candy.
.
And, every once in a while she was
able to get a piece-
An action she hoped would never cease.
.
Sandy is grown now and remembers so
very well-
That corner grocery, with so many tales
to tell.
.
Thank goodness Mother took a picture of
it long ago-
For it is now an empty space, where much
grass does grow.
.
She can still picture herself with the skinny
legs making that trip-
Rewarded with a piece of candy, as a tip.
.
It was always filled with stir-
That neighborhood store, on the corner.
