I sit and watch the squirrels chase each other in the walnut tree outside
Their chitterings
can peel paint
off the sides of trees
on a velvet day

and yet I don't mind

how does one small animal manage to make such a racket?

  2. They are just so active right now! And I really do enjoy watching them!
