"Warm!!" cries out Fluffy, the newly bought blanket, soft and thick. "I will keep you warm!!"
As he is thrown on the bed, spread
to corner, every corner of the bed he pledges to keep warm.
In the chill
of the Winter night
, you pull him slightly closer and he joyously assures you, "I will keep you warm."
As winter breaks into Spring you mumble
in your sleep
that perhaps it is a bit too
warm.... But all Fluffy hears is "warm...."
Clearly, Fluffy concludes, you want him to warm you more, and so he will keep you, warmer and warmer.
But Fluffy does not know that his role
passes with the seasons
And as the Springtime
takes its full turn, Fluffy finds himself taken from the bed.
He is folded neatly by halves and in quarters until he is a thick, neatly stacked square.
Dropped in the linen closet
atop old folded sheets
, there to stay until Winter's next bite
Surveying his new surroundings, Fluffy whispers down to the sheets below, "I will keep you warm."
