One Quiet Afternoon
 
 
Sitting on a grassy hill
With the breezes fairly still
I stare up at the peaceful sky
The clouds are going where they will
 
I hear a noise and sit upright
I turn around to see a sight
A little creature brown and gray
Looks down at me from her perched height
 
Silently she looks at me
This little creature wild and free
I reach out for my peanut jar
As she starts climbing down the tree
 
Quietly I sit and wait
As she comes at a careful gait
I hold a peanut in my hand
She chatters as if to berate
 
She stretches up to quietly stand
She makes a jump to gently land
And then the dear sweet fuzzy squirrel
Takes the peanut from my hand
