Chipmunk, Chipmunk,
Where could you be?
Maybe in this pretty little tree?
I wish to meet you,
And become your friend.
Maybe I could crush to your little head.
Just promise me you won't scream,
If your blood travels downstream.
So come out little Chipmunk,
If you dare.
Ill be waiting,
Right here,
I sware.

Two of them,
So cute,
And such prodigious nibblers
In their striped coats,
Four inches high
On hind quarters,
Sharing the rich rain pulp
Of a maple-leaf key,
Looking over one another's shoulders
For the neighbor's cat.
We could be
More like that.

have you  seen the chipmunk climbing up a tree
with  his stripey coat as fast as fast can be
looking for his food a nut than he can chew
with his chipmunk teeth so he can bite through
jumping branch to branch an acrobat his he
a creature of the forest and a life so free
he has big long tail and stripes along his back
running up and down along the forest track
living in a burrow in the ground so deep
this where he goes when its time to sleep

Green like a
Lake covered by algae
Soft spots
Leak through sunlight

Softly blowing wind
Rustling the leaves
Almost makes you think
The trees are alive

A chipmunk
Nesting in the shed
Down the hill
By the ivy patch

Turkeys waddling
Gobbling
Leftover bread crumbs
Their meal

A snake
In the front yard
Long and creepy
Black and yellow

A garden patch
Growing fast
Tomatoes
And beans

My grandma’s
Backyard

There you go, I wrote about nature. No song for this one :/

Like a chipmunk, my cheeks are stuffed

Like a chipmunk, my cheeks are stuffed
with chunks of you, little acorns
I’ve stashed and hoarded, clung to,
planted praying for fruit.

If (once) our bodies collide
like two stars sucking in one another,
I will trace your freckles, your scars,
your every limbs' meanderings,
with the gifts that have slipped from your lips,
glimpses of the gears
that keep you crunching.

You love books with rough pages,
thick fabric you can touch with fingertips calloused
and still feel the words beating blood on the page.

A scurry of munks
Are eating my garden;
To you they're cute,
But my heart's hardened.
They chirp at the trough
Of my labored crop;
Like double-dippers
They pouch and they run,
They sound like they're laughing,
Like they're having some fun.
I curse and complain,
But the munks keep returning,
Like a recurring refrain
Of free loaders and hoarders.
Should I feel such disdain?
After some thought,
We're much the same.

On our campground sign

There was written this line:

Please: BE BEAR AWARE !!

But where was the bear?



We asked the old elk

But she was of no help

And the big bison too

Stepping over his poo



We peered round the trees

And up through their leaves

But all that we saw

Were chipmunks galore



So we made us a plan

Asked National Park Man

But all he that he said

Was the ranger was dead!



Oh, how come he died?

Did a bear kill this guy?

Oh no, said our friend

But he met a bad end



He fell into Old Faithful

A geyser most ungrateful

His tubes became blocked

All the tourists were shocked



We gave up on our bear

Forgetting: BE BEAR AWARE !!

And back at our tent

With a look of content



Guess what we found

Spread all over the ground

A broken camp chair

And a big hairy bear



He'd eaten our grub

Was asleep on our rug

So what can we say

Now we've spent the whole day



They are out there you know

But not always on show

So if you search for a bear

Remember: BE BEAR AWARE !!

(My attempt at writing a poem for children! I saw lots of animals in Yellowstone - bison, elk, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, white pelicans, ground squirrels - but sadly no bears!)
