Ever Hopeful

Mr. Personality

 spotted a possum

lying under a tree

and, tail wagging,

suggested they run free.

He seemed puzzled when

the possum declined

’cause who wouldn’t play

on a day so fine.

Grabbing a stick,

he headed my way.

At least she’s standing

so maybe she’ll play.

    I think you could write and illustrate “Knox and the Possum” books.
