O is an osprey nest of twigs from a tree. P is for puffins living on islands and sea. Q is for quahog, whose bottom’s like its top. R is for rabbit, who moves with a hop. S is for seal, quite slippery when wet. T is for trout in a lake near Lubec. U is for an urchin shell washed up in a gale. V is for vole, a mouse with a short tail. W is for a whale in Frenchman Bay. X is a crossing sign, a warning each way. Y is for yawl, whose masts stand tall. Then, what do you see? A zillion snowflakes cover the letter Z.
