The Velveteen Sophie

By Kazza


With a stomp of your foot you greet the day
The covers rise
The door opens
Warily you peek from the hay
Is it safe?

A stretch and a hop and a half twist leap
There’s dew on the grass
The dog is out
From under the hedge you peep
Is it safe?

The giant rabbit is on the ground
The brush of the fur
The gentle pat
Blueberries, kale and hay is found
It is safe.
