Premature: A Squirrel’s Fun Day

squirrel eating grass in park march


Sliding under the fence

curious as can be

the prize can be seen clearly

near an apple tree


Climbing a tree

everything must be right

looking around 

no one in sight


There it stands

filled with luscious treats

must not leap prematurely

the mud is deep


Time to jump

wind giving a hand

leaping to glory

wind chimes sound like a band


On the pole

reaching for the feeder

a luscious seed

out comes a greeter


Running away

having heard a shot

a mouthful of seeds

it deters me not


Sitting on the fence

this is a fun game

gathering seeds all day

victory to proclaim
