For my sighing cometh before I eat and my roarings are pouring
out like the waters. Job 3:24

There is no denying
The Eastern chipmunk
Felt a bit like sighing
Whilst seeds were storing
Into her cheeks pouch,
As she grabbed her lunch...
Which she was not ignoring.
Anticipating every mouth full
I did not hear her roaring,
After all she was not a bull...
Nor did she e'en say ouch...
All I heard was munch!

Poetry by me, AJP

Thank you Sarah Springer for the spotlight...

    So, you get them too!! :)) You've captured him so adorably, esp. with his claws in his mouth. Makes it hard to call him a varmint! :D

    Thank you all...Yes, they are adorable little critters....It is fun to watch the cute expressions on their faces...Sometimes they'll just sit and think as though they are in trance...They can keep you entertained for hours.
