Friday Fictioneers – Boots on the rooftop

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Where did the handsome beloved go?” by Rumi: handsome, midnight, garden, rooftop, overflow, cypress, trembles, rose, search, mine, water, tell

Boots on the rooftop
Such handsome pair they’re mine
Search for them atop
The garden where sun shines

Such handsome pair they’re mine
They’re made for walking
Mine from midnight to nine
My feet no aching

Search for them atop
With cypress and rose bush
Tell me not to hop
As long as you don’t push

The garden where sun shines
Water overflows
My boots ever so fine
I will never throw*
