A hedgehog’s prayer

 I am a little hedgehog

And I live in a nest

Surrounded by oak leaves—

Nothing but the best.


I live beside a mountain

Under a bushy tree,

And I roam in your back garden

Feeling wild and free.


I rarely meet a Human

(Although I did the other day),

They’re very big and frightening

And I always run away.


My eyes are very sensitive,

I don’t like dazzling light,

But I love to see the Moon and stars

Adorning the darkest night.


I roam in your back garden

Feeling wild and free,

And I firmly believe, when I find God

He’ll be lovely and small—like me.

And my prayer for little that his Spikes are extra sharp, enough to puncture any tyre of a car that may just run over him....

I love Hedgehogs, miss them, as they don't live in OZ..we used to find them in the hedges all the time in NZ ( my home)
even found an albino one, and we've nursed many back to health..
AAAAAAAAAhhhhh this was refreshing Ty
