Ode to the Inventive Chipmunk by Blair Gaulton

Ode to the Inventive Chipmunk
Chipmunk springs;
scouring through the English garden;
in search of food and fun.
Lo and behold!
A slice of bread;
there for the taking.
Forges forth;
goes underneath;
eats a hole in the middle.
Puts head through;
now wearing a bread necklace.
Eyes a’ twinkle
in the sun.
Bounds away;
I’d swear the chipmunk had a smile.
What a sight!
I dedicate this to the chipmunk;
who made me laugh, and smile;
on this beautiful day!
