Most of my poems are from what can best be described as my "Blue Period", aka "The Dark Year of the Restless Soul".

Ode To a Squirrel

It sure looks like fun

Poised in the trees

Lord and master

Of all that you see

Seems like you always

Do as you please

Sometimes I wonder

Do you get fleas?


Flitting and flirting

From this limb to that

A gymnast, a tumbler

One great acrobat

You make all that danger

Look like old hat

Sometimes I wonder

Will you go Ker-Splat!


I could an actor

Or maybe an Earl

A millionaire rock star

Surrounded by girls

Of all the wild things

To do in this world

Some days I'd rather

Just be like that squirrel!

        Squirrels are neat little animals, except when they trash the bird feeders! Thanks for the comments.

        This is an amusing poem! I see squirrels very often where I live. The next time I see one—which may be as soon as tomorrow—I'll be thinking of your poem.

        I've been seeing them around more lately. Won't be long before the warm weather is here. Thanks for stopping by!

        Oh, watching squirrels is a form of entertainment for me at the Cottage. I am so looking forward to seeing them again this Spring. This is so true of them.
