“Where the Sidewalk Ends”

My grandmother introduced us to some pretty cool stuff as kids.  One of my favorites is the poetry of Shel Silverstein.  Here is one of my favorite poems from “Where the Sidewalk Ends.”  She gave me this book back in 1981.

LISTEN TO THE MUSTN’TS

Listen to the MUSTN’TS , child,

Listen to the DONT’S

Listen to the SHOULDN’TS

The IMPOSSIBLES, the WONT’S

Listen to the NEVER HAVES

Then listen close to me-

Anything can happen, child,

ANYTHING can be.”

from “Where the Sidewalk Ends” copyright 1974 Shel Silverstein
