Problematic Pets

I made myself a snowball
As perfect as can be.
I thought I’d keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first – it wet the bed.
Shel Silverstein

  1. Ah, Shel Silverstein… 🙂 I miss reading his poetry when we used to visit my aunt who had a copy of “The Light in the Attic.” She may have had “Where the Sidewalk Ends” too. Makes me all nostalgic… 🙂
