A Squirrel’s Lucky Day
I live in trees and on the ground. I hunt for food and race around. We squirrels enjoy the great outdoors. We have big nests and nutty chores. The park is full this time of year, with lots of picnics, spring is here. I hope to find some tasty scraps like cheesy chicken sandwich wraps. A baseball game has just begun The kids rush off to join the fun. But wait, what's that beside the tree- an ice cream cone left just for me? Hurry, scurry down the branches. Creatures don't get too many chances. Grab it, take it up the tree Hooray, I made it Yay, yippee! This treat is heaven so cold and sweet, Even acorns cannot compete. Why do people stare at me? stare at me? Can't a squirrel have privacy? So Mother Nature, won't you please make ice cream cones that grow on trees?
