Gabby The Goat: A Poem

Everyone expects a goat to be loud.
Brazen, bossy, messy and loud.
But Gabby the Goat is really quite shy. 
She does not like loud noises and crowds make her cry.
Gabby instead prefers a good book.
read under her favorite tree by the brook. 
She is a good friend who will let your star shine.
Happily carry your train and will never whine. 
Gabby the introverted goat is a winner
But don't turn your back - she WILL eat your dinner.

Getting to Know Lesli

Lesli Devito can’t quite remember when she started painting, just that she’s been doing it for quite a while now. With no formal training, Lesli took her own path and experimented with different types of paint. Eventually, she settled on something unconventional: acrylic house paint. She hopes that her works will “take people to their happy place.” Lesli also created a blog called My Old Country House in which she writes about her life, art and other adventures.
