The Animals' Winter Sleep
By Lynda Graham-Barber

Where do the northern animals sleep when it's nose-stinging cold and the snow drifts deep?
Bedded down in the spruce grove, where the howling winds don't blow.
In a hollow log near the old fence row.
Wedged between the rocks, sleeping all alone,
Snug together under a crumbing wall of stone.
In a mud-and-stick lodge, shaped like a dome,
Curled up warm in their boulder cave home.
Inside a dead maple tree, with family all around,
Tail-wrapped, in a tree-top nest, safe from all harm.
