A Chipmunk Chortles His Applause - Poem by Donal Mahoney

She's not young, his wife.
They've been together 40 years
but when she gardens in her shorts

and he's lying in his hammock she's
a lovely sight to see so when she
hears a noise, she turns and asks

what was that and he says
just an old chipmunk chortling
his applause for all these years.
