Coffee “Crispin”

My daddy, Linc’s a busy boy,

He followed Mom around,

Now with a second family,

His  children do abound.

 

I’ve newly left my cozy nest,

I’m like a Coffee Crisp,

About that size, and so they called,

Me Crispin, Little Wisp.

 

One day I nibbled on the hedge,

But then there came a dog,

I dashed across the driveway fast,

Much faster than a jog.

 

The maple tree was standing by

For such emergencies,

I scrambled up its trunk in time

But I had shaking knees.

 

I laid my body flat and clung,

The maple didn’t mind,

I didn’t want that dog’s sharp teeth 

To bite at my behind.

 

I even stayed till Anneli

Ran to the house and back,

To get her camera for me,

Before I turned to snack.

 

She left the dog inside the house,

And I felt so much braver,

I gave her all the smiles I could,

From that I did not waver.

 

I’m still a tiny Coffee Crisp,

And dangers are so many,

But this is such a lovely place

To live, the best of any.

 

I guess I’d better find some friends,

To help me get along,

So if you hear me chattering,

I’m calling with my song.
