I walked to a sign for a silly dare

Dancing, not walking, without a care

I knocked on the sign, wondering why

My friends thought it funny, as I started with "Hi"

And so I kept talking, with laughs all around

For laughter was fun, a wonderful sound

I asked the sign questions, like what was it's name

Then suddenly jumped when my responses all came

The sign started speaking! It said it was Fred

A lonely young sign, or so the sign said

The laughter was gone, my friends ran away

I turned and I looked, then heard the sign say

"Will you not stay and talk with me more?

Though you're just one, and once there was four,"

And so I did stay, and talked with the sign

Next to the road, I sat for a time

Thoughtfully there, as the sun dimmed to dark

I thought of the day, and what was the mark?

Just what effect had it all had?

Thinking of this, I began to be sad

No one would care, or think this was true

Who could I tell? Could I even tell you?

Today had been good, completely, all new

Not the first thing to think I'd go through

But maybe that helped in making it good

I think that young Fred was gladly understood

And still I do go to the road with this sign

I talk with young Fred, on days that are fine

Always it's fun, and always I'll smile

I have a friend, to talk all the while
