Strolling through the winter snow
All of a sudden I fell below
Strange as the window well was to me
The bottom was lined with apples and sunflower seeds
The human tried to help me out
But I would not budge and would not shout
Instead I “played possum” you see
A great old trick between you and me!
For two nights I kept warm against the house
Snuggled and content, waiting for a mouse!
Finally, Dave Schmidt came to my rescue
But not to place me on the eating menu!
Instead, he lowered the net over my body
Such care and kindness he did embody!
Lifting me high over the well
Everything now has turned out swell!
Once again I ran freely over the snow
Happily running to and fro!
