Squirrel Transporting Nuts
By David Smith September 4, 2009
As a squirrel transporting his cargo
On the high wire as he goes.
Hangs on with his mouth
As he grips the wire with his toes.
Like a set of barbells packed in his teeth
Can shinny along the wire;
So graceful and so neat.
And watching the squirrel,
As he steals another minute
What a joy to watch
And take life for all that’s in it.
