a new time

the battered boots
in need of new soles
the well worn walking stick
that weathered cloak
all stored

out come work boots
brooms and brushes
leather gloves
the old paint flecked robe
a new time

  3. A bit like the old quiz 'What's my line'.
    Trying to match the painted spattered 'robe' with the heavy boots. Nice entry.

  6. Old mollie,

    It has the feel of a new term at college or university about it. Preparation is in the air, as is the need to prepare for autumn and winter. Many days of hard work ahead I fear:)
