So, here is a poem about Autumn, and animals and birds making preparations for winter habitats.
There are more Autumn poems to be found on my web-site, but please remember, all my poems are copyright, and permission is needed for any publication of them. You are however welcome to use them with children at home or in schools.
Whispering in the
Whispering in the woodland,
Sighing in the trees,
Is the sound of autumn coming
In the rustling of the leaves.
There are scampering little rabbits
Seeking burrows under ground,
And squirrels storing winter food
Of acorns they have found.
The busy bees of summer time
Are dozy now and seek their hive.
While soaring swallows soon to go,
Swoop and swirl, and dip and dive.
Shuffling in the hedgerow,
Snuffling in the leaves
Is the sound of hedgehogs’ busy,
Making homes beneath the trees.
