A brightening

by Jem Croucher

 

Caught a movement in the undergrowth
Looked down at my feet
Saw a little face down there
Looking up, quite sweet
It was a friendly squirrel
Foraging for some food
I smiled and thought that seeing this
Was really rather good

Hurrying on my way to work
With a morning just begun
The night clouds parting up above
To make way for the sun
Sharing in this early hour
And meeting squirrels on the way
Will always bring a note of cheer
To brighten any day
