A Peach Delight

With a sense of foreboding

looking into the sky

a tree appears

leaves are their ally

Having been bamboozled

to come to this sight

promised a treat

a fruitful delight

Coming closer

is a huge squirrel

squealing out loud

tail beginning to twirl

Grabbing a peach

the squirrel climbs down

others join him

playing like clowns

Hearing sounds

the squirrels speed off

having claimed their prize

a dramatic blast off

Back in safety

there is pure joy

a sweet delight

leaving the pit as a toy
