I'd love to get hold of a copy of a poetry book I read in junior school (it was in the seventies, but from what I can remember the book was quite a bit older than that) It was a compilation of poems - one was about ' the baby over the way, is a better baby than me.....' and another had the line ' and when I'm gettin greally old, twenty eight or nine' and the only other one I can remember anything about, is kids buying shoes! Bit sketchy I know, but can anyone shed any light?

If No One Ever Marries Me Laurence Alma-Tadema If no one ever marries me - And I don't see why they should, For nurse syas I'm not pretty, And I'm seldom very good - If no one ever marries me I shan't mind very much, I shall buy a squirrel in a cage And a little rabbit-hutch; I shall have a cottage near a wood, And a pony all my own And a little lamb, quite clean and tame, That I can take to town. And when I'm getting really old - At twenty-eight or nine - I shall buy a little orphan-girl And bring her up as mine.
Sorry - never finished that post - I am afraid I don't recognise the other poems.
Kids buying shoes - is it this one?
Choosing Shoes, Ffrida 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.

BUT Flat shoes, fat shoes,
Wipe-them-on-the-mat shoes
O that's the sort they'll buy.
