Badger Family Poem by Denis Martindale

Badger Family

The badger and the twins looked great,
So lively, full of fun,
With brand new lives to celebrate,
So warm thanks to the sun...
Their little eyes surveying all,
No coaxing to explore,
So off they ran, no thought to fall
Upon the forest floor...

Their little noses sniffing in
Aromas near and far,
While I watched them with silent grin
Not ten foot from my car...
I sketched the little ones at play,
Their antics made me smile,
Perhaps that's why I stayed all day
And not just for a while...

When I got home, no-one was there,
No wife as yet for me,
That badger's joy made me aware,
Of all that yet could be...
I sighed as I had done before,
The years were passing by...
Yet who knows what God has in store?
Alas not you or I...
