Geta (Wooden Sandal)

These shoes fit me fairly well

I’ve worn them for a time

The shoes on your feet

very different from mine

Never have I tried yours on

neither have you mine, in kind

You know not the condition of my sole(s)

nor I, whether your walk might lead to gold

I will gladly tell you of my shoes

the journey, the comfort, the wear and tear

I too, will listen if, of your shoes

you choose some tales you dare to share

We then, will learn of each other’s trudging

and thus avoid a quickness in judging
