I am looking for a short children's poem, "New shoes, New shoes" which I learned in lst grade in 1937 published in a book, I believe, called The Children's Hour. It continues, "red and pink and blue shoes. Tell me what would you choose, if they let you try. Button shoes, bow shoes, pretty pointed toe shoes.................But flat shoes, fat shoes, stump them on the mat shoes..............That's the sort they'll buy!

Choosing Shoes by Frida Wolfe

New shoes, new shoes,
Red and pink and blue shoes.
Tell me, what would you choose,
If they'd let us buy?

Buckle shoes, bow shoes,
Pretty pointy-toe shoes,
Strappy, cappy low shoes;
Let's have some to try.

Bright shoes, white shoes,
Dandy-dance-by-night shoes,
Perhaps-a-little-tight shoes,
Like some? So would I.


Flat shoes, fat shoes,
Stump-along-like-that shoes,
Wipe-them-on-the-mat shoes,
That's the sort they'll buy.
