Where the Sidewalk Ends by CatcherRye Where the Sidewalk Ends by CatcherRye
Where the Sidewalk Ends
By: Shel Silverstein

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there 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 black
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 where 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.

O.o his head looks weird? Hmm, I don't really see it to be honest... ^^; could you be more specific?

mmm I'll try... the head looks a little big, or the torso(?) well, the upper part of the body is too small? or I could just be completely crazy, and the positioning is throwing me off D: but yeah.. I think his head is a little big :\ might want to ask someone better ya know, just to see :)
ahhahh btw, sorry I haven't been commenting D: I'll try to be better, k? ^^ hope it goes well with the other watchers too :) <3 cus your pics are really thoughtful ^^

XD My heads are always big! It might be hard to see since all of the colors may be meshing together. But thank you for the comments. ^^ :heart:
