Squirrel on a tree


There climbed a squirrel on a tree

“Little squirrel, will you pose for me?”

He said, “I’m busy. Can you hurry?”

I took his picture, and off he did scurry.

He had much to do, and I things to see.

We were able to capture this squirrel while on a hike at the Grand Canyon, North Rim on a recent vacation. This little guy was not in the least afraid of those on the path, and in fact looked as if he enjoyed having his picture taken. We think he was chewing off the bark to build a nest, but continued on with his ‘busy’ work, so I decided to try a fun limerick poem for the photo.
