At first she is intrigued but keeps her distance

Weary of the unknown she permits no license


Still cautious and watchful, with familiarity

She starts enjoying his warm proximity


Eventually comfortable she catches the fever

And allows the guy any mischief whatsoever


Easy and happy she snuggles the hardy chap

Cuddled to him she can even catch a quick nap


Finally the day comes of a certain number, (when)

His very presence puts her in a deep slumber!
