Animals in the Winter


Animals in the winter
Sometimes don’t like the cold.
So tell me, what do they do?
So, tell me, where do they go? 

If they hide away, that’s hibernation;
If they go someplace, that’s called migration.
Squirrels and hamsters hibernate.
Deer and birds and whales migrate. 

Animals that hibernate
Eat all through the fall.
When winter comes they roll up
In a little ball. 

They live off of the food they stored.
I wonder if they get so bored.
All winter they don’t eat or play;
All they do is sleep all day. 

Animals that migrate
May travel very far.
They use their feet or wings or fins
Unless they have a car. 

They travel with big groups of friends
Hoping that in the end
They’ll find some food where it’s warm
In a place away from harm. 

Animals in the winter
Sometimes don’t like the cold.
So tell me, what do they do?
So, tell me, where do they go? 

If they hide away, that’s hibernation;
If they go someplace, that’s called migration.
Squirrels and hamsters hibernate.
Deer and birds and whales migrate.
