2 Squirrels - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

Two walks at the park
Leisure strolls on her ground
Watching squirrels on tree bark
Before I turn homebound.
Today while passing along
On them my eyes fell
One in a bush alone
A little away another squirrel.
I wondered in my funny caprice
If they have ever had a chance
To exchange warmth and good wish
Or they haven’t met even once.
A little more daring in my whim
I thought the distance for them too far
So she roamed alone dreaming of him
And he unknowing forever seeks her.

    Love this sweet poem on one of my favorite little critters! I am a huge squirrel lover! I'm thinking they must have an innate ability to recognize one from another. Perhaps we'll never know. I had one little fellow who visited my are for over 2 years! Every day I would spot him/her running along the fence. How did I know it was the same squirrel? He/she only had a half of a tail! Loved that little bugger! Then one morning I woke up and found he/she hadn't made it across the street.: ( (Report) Reply

    A very fascinating sight! Squirrels with their nimble movements and bushy tails are interesting creatures! The last two lines give an adorable close to the poem! ! (Report) Reply
