When the skies turn bright blue and baking hot, That is when a creature will seek out, A respite from the blazing sun above, And take a splash in water they do so love. The echidna feels the heat as the mercury soars, And gives him reason to pause, Chasing busy ants with his probing beak, And consider taking a break. From the ant heap to the verandah, he does roam, For there, he senses that at this home, Lies untold luxury into which he does clamber, A water bowl to wash, and then to slumber.
