An Elephant

A giraffe. A chimpanzee
Named Jubilee. A human.
A confusion. A person.

Another book. A hedgehog
And a hen fool a Tomten.
He goes hungry. The chicks hatch.

Another book. A white day.
Two pigs who are best friends ski
Through a transfigured forest.

Another book. Carefully
Posed and photographed vintage
Toys illustrate how to count,

How to recognize letters,
Shapes, and the combined colors
Of a palette never grey.

Another book. A small child
Hops wearing ladybug wings.
A sun porch. A chickadee.
