Weathering the Storm…

Weathering the Storm

The squirrels are in the treetops snuggling together

They've set aside a store of food in case of stormy weather

They haven't got a worry and they haven't got a care

Dry and safe with bellies full, it's warm and cozy there

The deer are tucked in under a stand of towering pine

The needles make a bed for them that really is quite fine

They knew the storm was coming and so they ate their fill

Of tender bark and wrinkled berries found up on the hill

The bunnies in their burrow with noses twitching fast

Wonder to each other how long the snow will last

Yesterday they ate a meal of winter grass and clover

Enough to stave their hunger until the storm is over

A winter scene is quiet with the animals asleep

There won't be much activity when the snow is deep

It's a day for sitting by the fire and watching snow flakes  fall

And in the silence you may hear the winter snow birds call...
