The Feeder

squirrel eating grass in park march

Exploring the world

happy as can be

chewing seeds in the grass

packing them in a tree


Eyes wide open

a bird feeder comes into sight

rushing through the field

hoping to eat all of it before night


Inching closer

crawling on the roof

sliding down the wall

hoping not to goof


Seeing no one around

time to seize the prize

inching closer

climbing the pole toward the sky


Seeds are wonderful

his cheeks are full

now leaving the feeder

munching on the last mouthful


Life is good

returning to his nest

eyes are heavy

time for a night’s rest
