Upside-down Singing Opossum

Awake one night I heard some chirping.
I wondered to myself what could it be?
I thought it could be baby birds calling,
from a nest, outside my window, in the tree.

I shook my head and said, “Maybe,
but this doesn’t sound like a bird I’d ever heard.”
I imagined some kind of creature singing.
In the still of night without music or words.

I walked to my window very slowly.
I didn’t interrupt the interesting song.
It sure wasn’t birdies that were lonely,
turned out I was totally wrong.

Hanging by tails eyes gleaming like a gem,
was Mrs. Opossum and her opossum family.
Some say they’re pests but I watched them.
It was like they became pets for me.

A family of upside down singing opossums,
hung out side my window from a tree!
I don’t mind saying I think it was pretty awesome
to watch them grow and hear them sing!

Upside down singing opossums are really very misunderstood.
Research, maybe you’ll agree it’s awesome,
even if yours doesn’t sing as good,
to meet a family of upside down singing opossums!
