Who Is Richer?

Mole was proud that underground
Many cosy room were found.
In the dark such hidden wealth!
A kitchen, dining room and hall,
A bedroom, too, for Mr.Mole
And a study for himself!

Hedgehog Gloves


But I heard the homeless Hare
Playing in the field declare,
"I'm by far the richer one —
Look, I have the golden Sun!"

Hedgehog Gloves


Riddle-Dee-Dee

Who is she? What do you think?
— A little minx dressed up in...

Vixen

Ginger-Coat they say.
I've no shame, they say.
I eat ducks and chicks, they say.
Always up to tricks, they say.

Poppycock those cockerels crow!
You ask me — I ought to know.

Hedgehog Gloves


Who Is It?

On my back and sides there grow
Pointed spikes as strong as steel.
If I'm scared by any foe
Pins and needles he shall feel!

Hedgehog Gloves


I shout, "Wolf, how would you like?
To bite a needle or a spike?

Wolf replies, oh, so polite,
"Thanks, I shall not eat tonight!"

Hedgehog Gloves


Hedgehog Gloves

Baby Hedgehogs — good as gold!
I know why they're not too bold...

Hedgehog Gloves


Mother keeps the ones she loves
Well in hand with hedgehog gloves!

Hedgehog Gloves


Moose's Meal

Vixen went to dine with Moose.
He gave her the very best —
Aspen wood fried in its juice —
What dish to give a guest...!

Hedgehog Gloves


The Mouse With Wings

Boastful Mouse when taking tea
Said, "I’ll fly. I'm very eager!
Give me wings and you will see
I, the Mouse, shall be an Eagle!'

Hedgehog Gloves


Mouse got wings and he could fly.
But it’s sad to tell you that
What flittered high up in the sky
Was not an Eagle, but a Bat!

Hedgehog Gloves


Wolf-Cubs

Wolf-cubs run with padded paws — yelp!
Fangs of white in grinning jaws — help!
When Wolves attack they never growl!
A hunting Wolf won't ever howl!
The Wolfs a horrid hungry brute!
But runs away when hunters shoot!

Hedgehog Gloves


A Chat With a Hare

"I'm a scary little hare
With floppy ears,
One here, one there.
My feet are bare,
Poor little hare —
Always full of fears!"

The baby Hare heard our reply,
"Dear little Hare, you should not cry.
Bare feet
Are fleet feet.
Long ears
Help you hear.
Yes, very sad,
To be so full of fear!"

Hedgehog Gloves


Snail's House

See that house shaped like a shell —
The door is open wide.
The owner, Mrs. Snail, feels well,
With friends on every side.

She always has a nod and smile
For beetles, fish and fleas,
Her horns are waving all the while
Because she wants to please.
