I have this squirrel living in my non-working air conditioner (on the outside, inside is boarded over), and I love hearing him moving around in there on this snowy morning:)

Good Morning, Squirrel!
I heard you say,
"Look at all the snow today!"

Good afternoon, Squirrel!
I heard you say,
"Won't you please come out to play?"

Good Evening, Squirrel!
I heard you say,
"Time to go home, right away!"

Goodnight, Squirrel!
I heard you say,
"Warm inside is where we stay!"

Go to sleep, Squirrel!
I heard you say,
"Wake tomorrow to a new day!"

It's amazing the wonder wild animals inspire in us, even the birds and garden creatures - Mr fox sand the secretive hedgehogs. I like squirrels, but worry that our native reds are being displaced by the greys. Nice poem!

A wonderful children's poem - and how wonderful that you're willing to share your domain with earth's critters - many people simply will not tolerate them.

PS If my wife only knew the critters that like our comfy old crawl space!!

whimsical delight Michelle. Im always enchanted by this kind of poem.
I have a squirrel that comes to visit, he leaps from a tree onto a telephone pole cross the wires onto my porch. I'm on the second floor. I have a tree size umbrella plant he buries pine nuts in.Makes a mess so I put a med size clay flower pot full of just dirt, so he uses that now. I get such a charge out of watching, when I can catch site of him.;-)

You are far more polite to your squirrel than I am to my mice-with-clogs-on that clump about in my attic when I'm trying to get to sleep at midnight! It sounds like they're shifting furniture up there! We capture them humanely and walk them half a mile up the field - but they must be homing mice, I think, with radar, and come back again! Pleased to hear you have such a pleasing resident, Michelle - cute write! TY Kate xx

Well there is a raccoon out in the shed and I kind of like the masked bandit. But I did have a squirrel in the roof of the old house that burned. I like the way you did this.
