a poem about squirrels making it through the winter.

squirrel’s winter


squirrel’s nest high in a tree

in the snowy woods

must be a warm place


round and made of leaves

moss and twigs woven together


it has no lights

no heat from a furnace

no running water

no flush


little bodies curled together

asleep dreaming of spring

fresh food

and jumping through the trees

chasing each other


ice on the tree limbs

wind blows the tree back and forth

rocks the squirrels in their cradle

fast asleep


soon sun will warm

the air

rain will fall

and little baby squirrels will

take a peak out of their nest

to see what this new world is all about


next year they will be in the nest

as the winds blow the trees

and they will cuddle with their mates

and make new babies

to peak out of the nest at their new world
