ludwig ... let me count the ways

You'll have lemonade -
pink, and take afternoon naps.
Live with me, Ludwig.

Inspired by an etsy forum thread that called for us to write a haiku about something we covet, I wrote this poem for Ludwig. I admit, I am naturally suspicious of being a grown woman who is attracted to stuffed animals in the same way I distrust men with boy's names - the exception being Billy Collins. I guess I've just seen too many women wearing Disney sweatshirts. But this is different. I just know it is.

Ludwig was dreamed up and knit by Debi van Zyl, whose work and blog I am ever-so fond of. Her beasts make me happy. She makes paper things and mobiles too.
