The mustn’ts

As a kid, I loved Shel Silverstein.  We had beat-up hard copies of “Where the Sidewalk Ends” and “The Light in the Attic”, and they got read a lot.  A few years ago I found readings of these poems on iTunes  🙂  I sometimes forget I have them, and then the iPod will be on shuffle and a strange creepy little voice will launch into one of these poems. 

Tonight, it was “Listen to the Mustn’ts” :

Listen to the Mustn’ts, child.

Listen to the Don’ts.

Listen to the Shouldn’ts, the Impossibles, the Won’ts.

Listen to the Never Haves…

Then listen close to me.

Anything can happen, child.

Anything can be.

I needed to hear that.  Funny sometimes how that happens.



  1. Yes, … “anything can be.” 😉
