Weekly Scribblings Poem -- The Wait



I'm waiting, waiting and watching 

I'm watching the little squirrel 

I chased him up that small oak tree 

So now I'm waiting, he'll come down 

Some folk have large squirrels to deal with 

Others have small, both are waiting 

Waiting for their squirrel to come down 

Watching to learn more of what's up 

When my squirrel comes down more we play 

But when those folk's come down they work  

Their squirrels have problems they must solve 

Some get paid, some donate, we'll play

I loved reading Adi's story at the meme, and also like to think of her waiting for the squirrels to come and play. The pet therapy you did together sounds like a wonderful thing for all concerned. No wonder you miss her! Thanks for sharing Adi with us.

I enjoyed the poem and loved reading about Adi. I bet the stories they told her were wonderful. And I bet her presence but the biggest of smiles on their faces.

Aw! Good girl, Adi. I'll bet she was amazing at her job.

Unfortunately squirrels were brought into Australia so British settlers would feel more at home...pity they did that.
