Variations on a theme

Poem | Jody's Notes

  1. In the small leather box

is something like a heart.

It purrs

if she pets it.

 

  1. The leather is cool

and dark like nightfall.

Inside the tiny box

is something like a heart:

it throbs

but is velvet,

and purrs

if she pets it.

 

1.   The leather is cool and dark.

      Inside is something like a heart:

      it throbs

      but is velvet,

      and it purrs when she pets it.

 

  1. Such delicacy is hard to refuse.
