The Lucky Socks


They were mine until one rainy day

When my friend got wet

I gave them away

To give this gift required no pluck

Yet since, for my friend, they have brought good luck

It seems the stars have a magical way

To bestow good things

Chasing bad away

Now, when my friend faces challenges new

You can be sure to know

What she wears

In her shoe

It’s the Lucky Socks at work

You see

It’s magic afoot

Just  wait and see…
