Abigale

A parcel arrived, what could it be?
“Surely” said Mathilda “It’s all for me!”

Tis true, she’s been begging and pleading for another baldy head.
A sister with a shiny pate and little twiggy legs!
The wonderful Miss Evelyn agreed to share her kin, 
Abigale arrived last week from her wonderland 
I do hope she settles in.

Dear sweet Abigale,  a fragile and exquisite creature, a tiny bird who finds herself most at home on Gertrude’s lap. Don’t worry Evelyn, Mathilda loves her dearly, she hasn’t even pinched her yet!
