That award-winning poem in full…
She is as smooth as a rabbit,
She is as soft as a pillow,
She is as gentle as a hamster,
She is as noisy as an elephant when he stomps,
She is as big as a cow,
She is for riding,
She is my horse, Petal.
My horse is my friend.
I really rather like that – and not just because I’m the writer’s father. It has a naive gentleness to it.
And let’s not forget that I have a Master’s degree in Literary Criticism, so I know what the hell I’m talking about!
Speaking of literature – last night saw me up until 1am finishing the girls’ Christmas book, which is still – like Millie’s poem – untitled. I’ll try and post some images of a few pages here this evening (I’m at flippin’ work at the moment…)
But how about we get interactive for Christmas? Let’s have a poll to see which title is
best least bad.
