The Puzzle 30


Little hedgehog - but gigantic

floral lover and romantic -

paced a garden, to smell … flowers.

And not briefly, but for hours !!!

He was using his small nose

to smell pansies, golden rose, 

and peonies and cornflowers.

Hours, hours, hours, hours!

One day, he had special pleasure

to find treasure after treasure,

and one more, quite different thing. 

Suddenly he felt a sting.

He stopped making flavour study,

Someone said to him: „Hi buddy!”

Surprised hedgehog thougt: „Oh, dear!

Did I find a hedgehog here?!"

He was going to run away

but he decided: „I will stay.

I won’t close aroma practice,

because of my pal … the cactus.”
