The baby anklets

My little niece's feet that used to jingle
for all the hours of the day,
now unclad
and naked,
those soft ankles
by silent


  1. Baby anklets are really cute. They can be effective too if you have a sound device attached to them. My baby has bells on his ankles that way I can hear where he is going.

  2. Agreed. I wrote this one for one of my nieces who recently took off the anklets since she's has grown too big to wear them. In my place its like a traditional thing to make the babies wear them for the same reason you mentioned. I really loved the sound when I used to wear them.
