Dear Mr. Hedgehog
(Karen DeBiasse-1/3/14 ©)
A tiny animals birth
Appears on planet earth
HIs name is Mister Hedgehog
He wears a prickly shirt
Through brush and rocks and termite mounds
This Hedgehog he does go
His wobbly legs
His sticky spines
His pointy black tipped nose
Hello there Mister Hedgehog 
You’re out so late tonight
I slept all day and now i’m off 
To go out for a bite
Where will you go this morning
Once dined on grubs and worms
Be resting in my burrow 
Where I choose to be alone
He waddles through a garden 
He waddles past a tree
His teeth are pearly white
His black eyes barely see
Just go on with my business 
Get by without much strife
I dug a cozy home 
I live a simple life
I’m happy down here resting 
Will stay here all day long 
He tucks his tiny head in 
And rolls up in a ball
His quills stick all around
Pin cushion he is crowned 
And on his soft warm bed
Appears as if he’s dead
I’m just a spiny Hedgehog
A shrew can’t you see
I’ve been around forever 
For all eternity
Come catch me if you can
May make a nice warm friend
I’m not so hard to tame
And even like to bathe 
Am playful if you’re nice 
If not take my advise 
Beware my pointy spines
To them I will resign
I pick him up and there he rolls
A tight neat little ball
I hold him very precariously 
Afraid that he might fall
This adorable little hedgehog
In the palm of my own hand
Opens up and kisses me 
He doesn’t even stab
Oh Dear Ol’ Mr. Hedgehog
I hope your life is long
You’re fun and sweet and oh so cute
A treasure to us all
