Many years ago now, precisely how many I don’t know
I couldn’t wait to see the alpacas and their crias at our local Ag show
As I entered the pavilion someone shouted “You can look but don’t touch”
I felt somewhat bemused - I didn’t care for their rules much!
Still, obediently I obliged - well I gave it my best
I was just using my eyes when I somehow failed the request.
As a gorgeous young cria with the most extraordinary brown eyes
Raced over straight to me - despite her Ma’s cries
Well I could hardly believe how my luck went that day
When that glorious young creature came pronking my way
I did nothing to lure her - for some reason she chose me
I merely crouched down to observe her - and she just happened to see.
As she came over to me - her attention felt grand
And OH that magic moment when she kissed my hand!
To be touched by a creature as exquisite as this
Is a moment to relish - pure tactile bliss!
Well the cranky old man who was watching us then
Stormed over to move me - away from her pen
He said “DO NOT TOUCH I think you should go"
But he didn’t know - I’d just received - the best prize at the show
An alpaca’s touch - a true experience of bliss
An extraordinary sensation- not a wet, sloppy kiss
It is second to none - a truly unforgettable touch
Alpaca kisses - I love them so much!
This is my story.
