Only Three

by Liza Lominick

Three wishes
The first
A platypus
With a yellow beak
Brown fur
And a good personality
To watch him for hours
To pet him when I am sad
To swim with him in the summer
To snuggle him in the winter

Wish two:
A cage
With lots of room
And that is easy to clean
To put him in when he is not feeling well
To make him feel like he has his own room

My third wish:
A lot of good memories to help me remember him
But a platypus with a good personality
And a soft furry coat would
Be pretty darn hard to forget
