Muffin - a triolet

For Muffin ... No gazelle legs to adorn her Unending spots of black and white A leg thats placed in each corner No gazelle legs to adorn her I am her crestfallen mourner Licking, Nibbling, playfully light No gazelle legs to adorn her Unending spots of black and white (c) The Didds 2021

Your poem reminds me of a children's book called, The Greedy Zebra. A folk tale about how the zebra got his stripes by Hadithi. When African Animals who have no fur or skin, discover a cave full of furs and skins, they begin to sew their own clothes. The Greedy Zebra is late getting to the cave and only black fabric is left! What does he do? "No__ legs to adorn him!" Black and white, this zebra's coat is tight! Cute poem. I enjoyed reading.
