finding the mud was such a delight

starting out slow

checking how deep it was with a stick

walking, then running, then jumping, then splashing

filled with water dirt wood chips, rocks, sticks and unknown mushy things

ending with

a pair of mud-soaked socks

drying in the sun

and so much tired fun.

” mud is the most poetical thing in the world.”

and miss a thousand delicate joys

that were waiting for you by the wayside. “
