Nature In The Back Yard - Poem by Spock the Vegan

See the squirrel on the telephone wire.
See the hawk circling higher and higher.
See the cat climbing the aspen tree.
See the flower with the bumble bee.

Smell the scent carried in the breeze.
Feel the grass while on your knees.
Feel the wind blowing through your hair.
See the Blue Jay flying in the air.

See the lady bugs on the wall.
See the corn stalks, oh so tall.
Hear the call of the mocking bird.
Isn't that the sweetest thing you ever heard?

Topic(s) of this poem: animals, bird, birds, bugs, cat, feeling, flower, hearing, nature, plants

    MMMMM...... Nature! I love it. I have had a Western Scrub Jay, Northern Flicker, Dark-eyed Juncos, Downy woodpeckers, Black-capped chickadees and goldfinches on my bird feeders this week- - - oh, and a Eurasian Collared Dove and a magpie. I don't think I've ever seen a mockingbird.
    Also saw a squirrel just like the one in the picture in Twin Falls, Idaho two days ago. He was running across the highway trying not to become extinct.

    We have squirrels living in the trees around here. We see one almost every day. When they cross the road in front of us we call them Geico squirrels. Never seen the hive five though.
