Where the Sidewalk Ends

There is a place where the sidewalk ends,
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows back
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch wehere the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

-Shel Silverstein

I would love to find out where the sidewalk ends and see if it's all true.

Fantastic quote Red.

I remember reading "Where the Sidwalk Ends" and laughing my butt off when I was younger.

As for finding where it ends and if it's true...I think alot of us are still looking for the same thing. It's what keeps us going.

I haven't read those poems since elementary. Thanks for the refresher.
