Lost Baby Chipmunk

Silly little chipmunk~

Silly wee thing~

Sleeping where you stand~

I wonder if you are alright~

Why won’t you run if you can?

Tiny baby chipmunk~

I come close to you~

Waiting for you to dart fast~

But nothing do you do?

Infant chipmunk~

You seem to wearily move~

Closer to me~

Than I move away afraid~

Of what you are about to do~

I am now too shy to engage.

Lost baby chipmunk~

Where is your mother? ~

Maybe you think it is me? ~

But I am not~

I am a species of another.

Sleepy baby~

As I leave~

You follow me and cuddle close~

I do think you are confused~

As you dreamily snuggle to my feet~

Oddly I do find it very sweet.

I know to run away~

Hoping you are Ok~

So your real mom can find you~

To collect you~

For your proper nappy place.

I gaze on from my front porch~

To see if you wake up to find~

Your real mother looking for you~

Praying for your safety all the time.

Alas you perk up to join with~

Another sibling on the scene~

You both partake playing hide and go seek~

Amongst the nooks and crannies in the old stone wall~

I can hear both of your little peeps.

Next you both taking what you think refuge~

Under the violet leafs that have now grown tall and big~

Like the safety of little umbrellas shading from the sun~

I see you both again fall fast asleep~

Now that you had so much fun.

Silly little chipmunks~

Silly wee things~

Sleeping where you stand~

I wonder if you will be alright~

As I leave you in GODS hands.

How cute the poem was Lisa. I really liked watching the second video and thought it was funny when the mother was trying to get the baby into the box. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

I love chipmunks, even if my only memory of them are Alvin and the chipmunks. The poem is sooo beautiful and the videos are fantastic. The last one was funny. The little chipmunk deliberately made himself fat so he wouldn't fit in the hole. Lol.

Nature has such a wonderful way of handling things, which we must sometimes remind ourselves. Nice material!

I love chipmunks. One got into our house and we had to keep it for a few months until we could let it go in the woods across the street. We were teens then and cleaning out the fish tank we had it in was ....ummm, very interesting. They be very fast little critters.

Aaaaw, this has to be the cutest hub I ever read, Lisa. Chipmunks are so lovely. I loved this poem. It is adventurous and so playful and melted my heart.

You are a terrific writer. :)

Dear Readers~

Wow everyone! Thank you so much!

To think I thought for the longest time no one was commenting on my writings? Yet here I am finally catching up on all your wonderful comments! The reason being I have not answered your comments recently and in a timely fashion is that I had no idea they were there, because maybe my notifications were set wrong? I do not really know? Yet I am hoping I fixed the problem by playing with the notification buttons. We shall see. But the main thing is that I can tell you how each one of your comments delight my heart and I truly appreciate them all. Have an awesome day everyone!
