Daddy's got his marching legs on...

Another extra little post.  I'm trying to force myself to write a bit more often (I've actually written another that I've not posted yet, but I might save that for a special occasion).  I was thinking about when I was little and I used to have to run to keep up with my Dad.  It's not really poetry (so I've categorised it as prose), but I think it looks nicer laid out this way.

Daddy's got his marching legs on.
They're slightly taller than me,
but quite a lot shorter than Daddy.

When Daddy turns them on
they walk very quickly and
I have to run to keep up.

Daddy holds my hand very tightly
and even if I stop walking
my legs keep going all by themselves.

When I start to fall behind,
Daddy lifts me off the ground
and swings me in front with one giant step.

It feels like I'm walking on the moon.
