Two squirrels

Two squirrels 

hopping around 

merrily on a thin wire 

two squirrels 

jumping around 

caring nothing at all 


two squirrels 

maybe friends 

jump and play as acrobats 


two squirrels 

Looking like acrobats 

jumping and flying 


two squirrels 

maybe siblings 

Singing inside 

Don’t know which tune about 


two squirrels 

Maybe soul mates 

caring where to live 

yet playing around 


Appear as adorable children 

jumping, falling, singing , circling around 

are they serious ?

don’t know 

are they jumping? ; attracting attention 

don’t know 


in their seriousness 

they never forget to have fun around

    You certainly capture here how squirrels always seem to be joyous creatures. I used to leave unsaleable sandwiches (wife had sandwich round) out for them and dutifully they would dash along the garden wall in staccato fashion and pick up a sarnie to eat within a few fett of me peering through french window. These were grey squirrels. Al,so i recall the squirrels in a birmingham park would come begging and take food from your hand. Lovely creatures.

    Enjoyed reading your words

      Thank you so much dear dusk
      Your such a kind soul
      Squirrels are so adorable
      Whenever I feel sad, I try finding one
      Today seemed lucky I found two playing together
      Thank you so much for stopping by…

          Squirrels are really ugly here in Italy, I really miss the British version 😉 🐿️ does this mean you've ventured out and about spills? Well done 💖

          • spilleronsheet

            You have such a good sense of humour
            I wish I could see your squirrels
            It’s okay my friend
            I am pretty sure there are other stories that you would weave
            Italy is such a lovely place
            So beautiful and so romantic

            Cheeky wee squirrels are going nuts this year. Do they know something we don't? Is winter round the corner.

            • spilleronsheet

              They do know a lot Paul
              They are hiding the acorns
              I have lost my peanuts
              Those are really clever chaps

              • Paul Bell

                Yeah, never seen such collecting.

                    It is so wonderful to watch squirrels, we used to have them in our garden and it was a joy to watch them playing.


                    • spilleronsheet

                      It’s surely appeasing watch them play
