The pink chameleon is a magical creature.
He hides among the roses;
He says his prayers at night;
He eats jasmine and lavender.
Legend has it,
He once belonged to Thumbelina;
And for services rendered,
She placed a diamond-studded collar

about his neck.
From the collar,
Hung an opal,
Milky-white and honey-smooth.
A magical opal.
All the colors of the rainbow,
In shades of soft pastels,
And all the gentler mysteries
of the universe, and beyond,
Are known to the pink chameleon.
