Oh, dear, warm and cozy friend,
How I appreciate your warmth
When temperatures dip into the 20s
I crave your soft embrace.
You are a welcome sight.
After a long day of toil,
Your enveloping fleece protects me from a frigid home.
Victim to the coldest winter since 1974-
The year before I was born.
Precious is the grandmother who sought you out for my protection.
Together we are quite a pair.
You snuggled against my skin
Covering me from head to toe
Allowing me complete access to
Taku seeks out your comfort and warmth and you graciously welcome him with open arms.
Although you are not the real Snuggie,
I love you for who you are.
The plaid fleece blanket –
Much more attractive than blue or pink.
Your plastic made in
but provide character that Mr. Snuggie is missing.
Today, tomorrow, now, we will meet for our next read.
