To A Hedgehog
Every day I see you in the woods hiding
In the plants with your prickly, spiky back, trying to hibernate,
Your nest is an amazing, bundle of leaves
It could be the matter of life and death.
You eat worms as if they were gummy sweets
You plan to wake up in Spring fresh and ready to go again.
But first you have to go through the stormy, rainy nights ahead.
Staying warm and safe in your warm leafy bed.

To A Snail
Some would say that you are ugly
Some would say that you shine
Some would find it lovely the way you leave a silvery line.
To some there are places you are unwanted
To some birds you are not
But the food you eat, the plants and leaves, the greenery and the lot.
To lots of things you are vulnerable
To lots of things you are prey
But amazingly you don’t predict this and worry only about today!
Some would say you are practical
Some would say you are slow.
But if it really matters to you I really do not know!
I know that you are hungry
I know you need your food
But if I could help you I definitely would.
