May Story Poem

Little Skunk and the Cherry Tree House
( a wee story poem for puppetry from our Spring Tales book)

Early one morning when dew's on the grass,
A wee little skunk went walking past,
Right by the cherry tree ever so slow,
Looking for cherries that fell below.

He stopped for a nibble, a breakfast, a munch,
Oh yummy, I bet he'll be back for some lunch!

When it was mid day, the sun high in the sky,
I couldn't believe what I saw walking by.

Skunk and his friends had come for tea,
Under the bountiful cherry tree!

There was rabbit, and hedgehog, turtle and mouse,
Why they might just stay and make it their house!

 The End


Thank you all for your support!

Best Wishes,
