Christmas Wishes

Print Share
    I’m thinking about you, badger,
    Asleep in your winter den.
    I’m thinking about you, ground squirrel,
    And remembering the bright days when
    You scampered up in our treetops
    With never a thought of snow.
    I’m thinking about you, brown bear,
    Tucked safe from winds that blow.
    I think about you, bumblebee queen,
    And all creatures wrapped in sleep.
    I’m thinking, and I’m sending you
    Good wishes so you’ll keep
    Safe and warm and resting well
    Until springtime days come near.
    I’m wishing you sweet Christmas dreams
    And a happy bright New Year.
