The last thing I expected
Was the first thing that I saw
When I looked from my window
And I stood there just in awe

I saw three little babies
There was no mother 'round
They jumped and climbed and tumbled
Really playful on the ground.

Three fury little critters
With their tiny painted masks
Their three ringed little tails
As the scrounged around for snacks

Such curious lil' critters
But so lonely on their own
With their momma not around
Would they make it to be grown?

Two of them, they scampered up
To the top of the tree's limbs
But one of them just sat there
Wasn't running on a whim

So slowly I approached him
While extending out my hand
I thought I might get bitten
But it went how I had planned

Think he was as scared as me
He didn't move a muscle
I put my hand out towards him
And gave a nervous chuckle

He sat there still and quiet
As my hand pet his rough fur
And as I gently stroked him
I wondered, where was his mother?

I watched these little babies
As they stayed around and played
Long as you stood back and watched
The lil' critters weren't afraid

For many days I watched them
Then one day they disappeared
Don't know if they just ran off
Or were roadkill, that I feared

Three tiny little raccoons
And they filled my days with joy
Wonder where it is they went
With no mother to convoy

hehe. I wouldn't worry about them, dovey. Nature has a way of taking care of its own. I enjoyed this poem the first time and I still do. Thank you, dovey......

Becky...I love this one so much...reminds me of being back in Texas and watching the squirrels play out my window...5 of em playing tag, chase, hide n go seek, and dive bomber...(saw one leap from a branch onto an unsuspecting one...nearly fell out my chair laughing).

LOL Ali! The raccons may have left, but every once in a while I get a chance to glimps the squirrels playing too. They were doing that just the other day in my backyard.
Was the funniest thing

This is sooo precious 'Becca. I love watching the wildlife scamper and play and 'Deer is right...they have a way of fending for themselves. Love this poem!

Shawna I love to watch them too, it's very amusing. They were just babies, so I hope they survived.

Thanks Denise.

Appreciate it Mike!
