mama Tillie…

Never you fear…

Before I begin

I give you my utmost promise

That there will be a happy end

Simply because

Here I am

All in one piece

Writing this…

Ms Tillie Raccoon sort of wobbles

Straight passed

Towards the west

Where the water waits

It’s her way of distracting me

From her four funny children

Who play at hide and seek

Up, down and around

This barky circular tree

I smile at their games

And keep quietly on

As I have no wish

To be robustly greeted

On this fine morning

By protective Mama Tillie
