Henry the Hedgehog

On a lovely sunny morn
Henry the lonely hedgehog
Awoke with sun as it reached dawn
As he heard some croaking frogs
With birds a chirping everywhere
And the frogs making their din
Henry, looking here and there
He gave a sleepy grin

He'd woke up from hibernation
All set for a brand new season
Looking forward to a new adventure
His waking gave him reason
To say 'hello' to all around
He felt real good today
He has a chat on the muddy ground
Then he went upon his way

As he strolled along the path
He saw old Polly Parrot
Old Polly he did make him laugh
He was chewing on a carrot
It's not the fool that parrots eat
But that's how Polly is
They both were happy so to meet
And spent their day in bliss

It's nice to see the efforts of another lyrical poet. This poem was well crafted and rendered with good flow. Kudos to you Vera.

Jan my dear friend thank you so much for the lovely comment, I can always rely on you, actually I feel so silly putting my poems on this site because they just don't match up to all the other poems people put on, but Peter always has a go at me when I say that, if it wasn't for him I wouldn't put them on, but thank you so much for all the visits you make to my site, take care my friend and love to the family........Vera..............
