The books

They arrived in their group
knowing separation awaited them,
trusting their new homes,
vetted as they were
by the one who created them,
would be safe,
a place to be loved and cherished
as they were meant to be,
they would make friends
among their various companions.

First they must be clothed
and then make their solo journey,
days passed with many strangers
then safe arrival, journey's end,
being greeted at the door
their clothes removed,
as they were home.
