Tryin On Clothes by Shel Silverstein

Tryin' On Clothes 

by Shel Silverstein 


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.
