My coat streaked in shades of brown My home borrowed in the ground Cheeks full with summers plunder Winter is coming will there be enough I wonder Nuts and seed are enough to please For these I gather with expertise Shucking and shelling to reveal my foils Carefully tucking them away so not a one spoils They say I'm a mammal small in size I say please don't chastise For that little debility I make for with speed and agility For I am Chipmunk Not some little punk

Very cute poem that well describes chipmunks. We used to have some in our courtyard, but the neighbor's cats have "evicted" them. Elton Camp

Such cute images of the chipmunks storing their nuts and seeds away for the winter. LOL Chipmunks deserve our respect. Surely, they're not "little punks." Smart little creatures who know how to save for the future. We could learn from them, Robert. Great work! Love, Carolyn
