Illsa's feet would tap-tap-tap! Her tail would swish-swish-swish! She'd swing from branch to branch with a whoosh and a wish.

By day, she'd roam the dappled wood, where everything was calm and good. She made friends with the bouncy bunny and the chattery chipmunk, so funny!

One fine morn, while on a trail, Illsa met a tiny snail. 'Come join my fun,' Illsa hummed. The snail smiled wide, 'Oh, how I’ve longed to be free and wild!'

They splashed in streams, made boats from leaves, rode on breezes with fluttering sleeves. The snail cheered, 'What a ride! With you, fun’s always right beside.'

Up a hill they climbed so high, touched the clouds in the sky. Illsa said with a wink and cheer, 'With friends like you, there's nothing to fear!'

As the sun dipped low, they found a tree with a golden glow. A wise old owl greeted them, blinking eyes behind spectacles' hem.

'Whom do you seek, Illsa dear?' hooted the owl with borderless cheer. 'A place to rest and end our quest,' Illsa replied with heart so blessed.

The owl led them to a nook so snug, a perfect spot for night’s bug. Nestled close, with stars aglow, they slept in dreams’ sweetly flow.
