A friend so shy

 
For if you leave a dish of milk,
some scraps that you would never miss.
Your kindness reap rewards
and on such tiny legs, not stilts.
A visitor may broach, and take his fill

 Leave his dry and comfy nest
and chance the cars upon the road.
The lottery, and be exposed
small bravery, for treats in store

A cartoon character of joy?
a Tiggywinkle come to call.
is he or she. that soft and fluffy toy
that snuggles in a preserving ball

They be the gardeners right hand man
control the garden pest, where they prevail
and do no damage to the land
a diet of just slugs and snails

For they are private souls
so welcome them with open arms
and sojourn nightly on patrol
dressed in a Sonic uniform of barbs
