Baby Chipmunk

Please Don't Feed the Chipmunks


In the year of many dandelions~

As the violets are in bloom~

On a non-sunny day~

While a chartreuse green canary~

Sipped water from the birdbath~

The baby chipmunk was curious~

Trying to look for buried nuts~

Under a small Iris stalk~

When I spoke to him~

He ran off.


A little later~

I saw baby chipmunk venture~

Near to the fir tree~

As he inadvertently climbed~

There was danger he could not see!


Next thing I saw~

Was baby chipmunk running for his life~

Straight along the white picket fence~

As Mama Robin and Papa Robin~

Dived bomb the poor little chipmunk~

To protect their nest from~

The wee little pest!


Mr. and Mrs. Robin~

Where relentless in their dagging~

They must of seemed so large~

To the little baby coming out of it~

Lucky without scathing!


Fortunately baby chipmunk~

Escaped to a near by hole~

With new found knowledge~

Not to dare climb up that fir tree ever~

Again so bold~

And

Look before he takes on endeavors~

So bad things do not unfold!

      Wow everyone! Thank you so much! 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!

      I luv chipmunks!! Saw one in India running towards a tree trunk going into a baseball style slide and then scampering up the tree.

      Had a dream about a chipmunk recently. A very good omen.

      Gotta love chipmunks. I think they look so cheeky. We don't have anything quite like them here. Poem and pictures perfect.
