Apologia - Poem by Cherie Mort

You were so warm when I met you today
Your blue eyes happy and welcoming
I was immensely shy, and curled away from you
You lightly teased me about my timidity
I knew you wouldn't hurt me, but I felt ashamed all the same if you thought I meant so
I apologize for my stony demeanor; I had not meant to offend you with my dark brow, serious but trying to save face all the same
Truth be told, an outing such as I had made today was rare, my time mostly spent hiding behind walls and walls of books
I was simply unsure as to how I should behave after my self-imposed seclusion, much like a rabbit departs her warren after winter's frozen fingers have retreated from the earth's warm surface
I am glad you took everything in stride, and didn't mind it much
I only hope you can forgive the timidness of a winter rabbit
