“I love you”, she whispers,
but shouts “one more hug!”
She giggles and hides in her sheets.
“It’s camouflage,” she says as she burrows in,
I tell her she must be a bug.
“No!” she laughs “Guess again!” she demands.
“A strawberry? A Tree? A pile of dirt?
A rock or a rabbit all snug in a rug?
A tree or maybe a bear?”
A tickling hand finds her, laughter erupts!
“It’s Annalise, my dear little squirt!”
