Horatio the Hedgehog (poem for children)

Hedgehogs visiting my garden

A children’s guide to Hedgehogs

Horatio the Hedgehog

Horatio is a hedgehog,
Has gone hunting for food to eat,
Rummaging around the old log,
Digging the earth with his feet.
His nose is sniffing everywhere,
For in the darkness of the night,
They tell him the insects are there,
So he can find them without light.

Alongside the fence he walks,
Looking for a tasty treat,
Moving round the flower stalks,
He finds a worm to eat.
Then once he is fully fed,
He sees that dawn is on its way,
So returns to his cosy bed,
To sleep in peace through the day.
