Hedgehog in The Fog

In the evenings, Hedgehog went

to Bear's house to count stars.

Perched on a log, they would sip tea

and gaze into the starry sky.

It hung over the roof,

right behind the chimney.

The stars to the right of the chimney

were Bear's.

The stars to the left

were Hedgehog's.

I'll tell him:

"I've brought you raspberry jam..."

And he'll say:

"The samovar's cooled off

We'd better put some of those...

JUNIPER TWIGS on the fire."

And then I'll tell him...

and I'll tell him... I'll...

I wonder, thought Hedgehog,

If the horse lies down to sleep,

will she suffocate in the fog?

And he started off slowly

down the hill

to get into the fog

and see

what it was like inside there.

Hmm. I can't even see my paw!


But the horse didn't say anything.

What a weirdo.




I'm in the river,

Let the water carry me along,

decided Hedgehog.

He gave a deep sigh and began

to float downstream with the current.


I'm soaked through. I'll drown soon.

Suddenly someone touched his paw.

Excuse me,

said Someone very quietly.

Who are you and

how did you end up here?

I'm Hedgehog. I fell in the river.

Then get on my back.

I'll carry you to the shore.

Thank you.

Don't mention it, said Someone.

Hedgehog! Where were you?

I called and called,

but you didn't answer!

I've already got the samovar going,

And I put our seat out

to be comfortable while we count...

And then I thought

"he'll be here soon...

and we'll sit down and have tea

with raspberry jam"

it is raspberry jam

you brought, isn't it?

And I've got the samovar going,

And put twigs on the fire...

those twigs... those..."

Juniper twigs?

Juniper twigs,

to make the smoke smell nice!

And... and...

because... because...

who else but you

would count the stars properly?"

Bear talked and talked

and Hedgehog thought:

Still, it's wonderful that

we're together again.

And Hedgehog

also thought about the horse:

How is she, there... in the fog?

The End
