Dancing Through the Trees

When September’s air changes to a chilly-nilly kind of cool,

summer’s ended, leaves are turning, kids are back in school,

Ms. Squirrel is busy, busy, gathering precious food.

For just around Fall’s corner, the cold winter broods.

What will she do those winter months with nothing much to do?

She’ll snuggle among her acorns-that’s what-and hibernate a few.

Sure she’ll miss the snowflakes falling and lovely hills of white,

but she’ll be dancing through the trees all the days and all the nights.
