Brown, black, reddish, or gray,
squirrels are definitely here to stay.
It’s fun to view them as they eat
an acorn or a nutty treat.
I think of them scurrying among leaves in fall
More than at any other time of year at all.
To watch them can give your spirits a lift,
As they climb up a tree or do other things swift.
I don’t remember seeing a squirrel that’s just a baby;
If I take a nature walk down a woodsy path–maybe.
I thank the Lord for these little creatures,
Among His creation with their own unique features.
P. A. Oltrogge
