Mutual Admiration

Squirrels wait each day

When she comes out of her house

They know what’s coming

They need the nuts she gives them

She enjoys being needed

Hoist the Main Tail

A little captain’s cap

Fits on the squirrel’s head

Insignia in red

The S. S. Nut

Just room for one on board

More than a rodent raft

A sturdy sailing craft

An acorn hull

Chasing Tails

Three squirrely whirlies

Playing tag in the tree

Filled with joy, so carefree

Come, watch the fun

Quite a Tail

The little face poked out

Of the nest in the tree

Blinked, a new day to see

Sun on the rise

Happy little squirrel

Scampers down the branches

Off to take his chances

For adventure

Aw Nuts

There goes that squirrel

Straight up the tree to a nest

Poked around inside

Must not have found anything

Sad, no neighbors to play with
