My New Blanket


A little girl
was taking a break,
preparing to enjoy
a nice piece of cake.

A squirrel jumped on her
giving her a fright,
he was really hoping
to get a small bite.

A bird flying by
was horrified by this,
but the squirrel didn't care
and blew her a kiss.

The oak tree sighed:
"well, he is young",
and the naughty squirrel
stuck out his tongue.

Other animals arrived
drawn by the chatter,
 all wanting to know
what was the matter.

Some had an opinion, 
some had a laugh,
when the little girl
finally had enough:

"You are all lovely,
but for heaven's sake
let me have a moment
to enjoy my piece of cake"!


Featured: I've pulled all my
unfinished crochet projects
into one big blanket.

  1. And it makes a wonderful sampler of a blanket! The children are beautiful and are enjoying it lots. Then there’s that cake... And the rhyme...all quintessentially Amalia.

  5. Oh wow! Gorgeous sparkling colours. Can we expect an annual blanket announcement? I had a sense of déjà vu reading this post as the subject matter felt strangely familiar. I now realise I had read your poem before when you shared another beautiful quilted blanket. That was published in April a year ago and still just as relevant. For a moment there I wasn't sure whether my mind was playing tricks on me.

    So nice to see happy children enjoying the colours and the cake. Beautiful work Amalia and a great way to make sure no yarn goes to waste. I like that hat someone is wearing - that looks familiar too - will there be more feelings of déjà vu? ;-)

    Keep smiling. May you continue to find fun (and colourful frolics) in every day. xxx
