I tried on the farmer’s hat,
Didn’t fit’€¦
A little too small - just a bit
Too floppy.
Couldn’t get used to it,
Took it off.
I tried on the dancer’s shoes,
A little too loose.
Not the kind you could use
for walkin’.
Didn’t feel right in ‘em,
Kicked ’em off.
 
I tried on the summer sun,
Felt good.
Nice and warm - knew it would.
Tried the grass beneath bare feet,
Felt neat.
Finally, finally felt well dressed,
Nature’s clothes fit me best.
