A Sweet Little Secret In The Garden


                                          Working in the garden
                                         The sun is on the wane
                                     and it is approaching evening
                                       Down by the garden fence
                                         I throw some compost
                                 Hear something that moves slowly
                                        Wonder what it might be
                              I stand for a while as quiet that I can be
                       Out of the leaves comes a small nose protruding
                                          Who are you I wonder
                                      Weird, funny sounds I hear
                        Slowly comes my garden guest out of the leaves
                         Rolling round, small cute feet, pink little nose
                                        and a body full of spikes
                                    Such a cute hedgehog you are
                                You are very welcome in my garden

    This is so sweet and cute. Really good imagery. I could see him poking his little nose out and coming cautiously out to see you. Great job. Love it./ God Bless, JB

    Awww...lovely, I suppose hedgehogs must mate very cautiously...in Australia their equivalents are called Echidna...and when a mommy Echidna has a little baby ..it's called... a "puggle"...which is nearly as cute as your poem...grins...mike

    I love your writing. I would much rather find a hedge hog than the hundreds of baby snakes that had obviously just hatched in my compost pile.

    I have never seen a wild hedgehog except, I believe it was on the sidewalk in Chicago. It was walking down the street like it owned the town. Such a fond memory you brought back to me from 55 years ago. Thank you.
