The Perfect Den

A treehouse, please,
high in the trees.

A cave, for me,
deep under the sea.

A tent made for one,
somewhere in the sun.

A small comfy chair,
tucked under the stairs.

A garden shed,
with a hammock-bed.

A blanket fort,
in a far-off port.

A silver cocoon,
in a pod to the moon.

A cosy nook,
with my favourite book.
