This evening I had a Where the Sidewalk Ends moment. We got a new table for our entryway yesterday. (Pictures to be shared soon.) I was pulling items from other rooms in order to begin to style the table. To get off on a quick tangent, I really have no idea how I am going to pull together this tiny table. I don’t want to put a lot on it as it will easily begin to look cluttered. However, I do want it to be pretty. My heart is torn.
I pulled a group of books off of my bookcase in the living room. One of the books was Where the Sidewalk Ends. Once I decided that the stack of books I pulled were not going to work, I noticed what I was holding. Then nostalgia kicked in. I couldn’t help but to reread my favorite poems. This one is my absolute favorite: Listen to the Mustn’ts. (Photo taken from my book.)
I found Shel Silverstein, as most do, when I was in elementary school. However, the poems did not resonate with me until I was much older. Listen to the Mustn’ts has always meant the most to me. It is inspirational and sometimes even brings a tear to my eye when I read it out loud.
I am not the only one that loves the poems of Shel Silverstein and Where the Sidewalk Ends. Here are some awesome photos Instagram users have shared recently.
I hope you had a great Saturday.
