Solution by Jaihind Singh.


Pointy shoe
With pointed shoes
You can choose
Before you’ll dy
Let’s go and try
No matter which colour
Red or pink or blue
Pointy toe-shoes will do
They can be flat
They can be high
They can be large
Or even tight
Shoes to dance
Or velvet shoes
Just happy feet for you !
