It is no secret that I like squirrels

Their bright eyes engage me

They don’t stop to ask for referrals

They just show up trustingly

They know I will give them food

I put out peanuts, corn and seeds

I know they won’t be rude

They are only satisfying hungry needs

Their eat their fill of the tasty peanut

And bury some for later

It’s only right they fill their gut

And keep some for when need is greater

They just delight me with their antics

Their grace and charm amaze

They can be goofy and sometimes frantic

But never boring with their ways

So think me silly if you will

I am a huge fan of Sciuridae

“Squirrel whisperer” describes me still

In my heart they will always stay
