There was a little girl called Zoey with a Y.
She had hair like gold and a twinkle in her eye.
When I asked her what she’s into, she said her friends and school,
She said she likes her mom too. I agreed. She’s pretty cool.
She was crazy for her dog Coffee and other animals too.
She said she wants to work with them – maybe at a zoo?
Perhaps she’ll help save a raccoon one day or possibly a possum.
When I asked how to describe her, she told me to say “awesome!”
Last week she’d been home sick, with a fever every day.
I thought I’d try to cheer her up with a Giveaway.
I pulled out a sparkly little ring and put it in her hand.
She said it looked like a portal into another land.
She put it on her finger and drove off with her mom.
A weary little ten-year old, happy to go home.
