with the vintage rose pattern
and landed on the equally plush carpet
in the early morning hours
when the sky was turning lilac
and the princess rose in her sleep
missing the plush (oversensitive) bunny
coming into the living room
sensing it in moonlight there
its purple ear a little smushed
because let's get real
it wasn't a good landing
even if it was indoors
away from the cats
and so just at that
moment came the pitterpat of the new puppy
paws a little unsure on the hardwood
flooring in the hall a little small
for the job but unerring
picked up the plush bunny by
its violet ear, tugged on the rose print
robe of the princess
and led them back up the stairs.
both at the same time
queried the over critical?
yep. it was a magic puppy.
that's what kind of day it was.
you forgot to say!
