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
