Petite


      The author wants you
      to be interested in her nature.

      The plants can be viewed as furniture.
      Yes, the room must be this warm.

      These are the largest tigers in the world.
      These caterpillars once were cats.

      They like for us to pet them
      but not for us to stare.

      They like us to be silent
      as in honor, as in hour.
