Mole Makes A Decision

from The Wind in the Willows by GreenMatthews

/

lyrics

So the autumn drew on and the nights drew in likewise.
Leaves from trees began falling underneath the darkening skies.
And the world slowed its breathing as the swallows were leaving
For the warm sunny South where there was no frost or ice.
And one night beside the fire Mole sought the Rat’s advice.

“Dear Rat might we go on a trip to the Wild Wood?
I’ve not met Mr Badger out of all the neighbourhood.”
But the Rat yawned and said “Oh no. In the springtime we’ll surely go.
Badger hates social calls and it wouldn’t do at all.
When the spring comes round again that will be the time to call.”

But the Mole was resolved and when Ratty was asleep
He put on his warm coat and then out the door did creep.
It had just begun snowing and the daylight was going
But undaunted Mole walked just as swiftly as he could
Left the Riverbank behind and made his way to the Wild Wood...
