Squirrel Poems
Five Little Squirrels~

Five little squirrels sitting in a tree
The first one said "It's getting cold for me!"
The second one said "The leaves are falling to the ground."
The third one said "There are nuts to be found."
The fourth one said "We'd better not wait."
The fifth one said "Fall is really great!"


Gray Squirrel~

Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your bushy tail
Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your bushy tail

Wrinkle up your funny nose
Put a nut between your toes

Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your bushy tail!


Whisky frisky
Hippity hop
Up he goes
To the tree top.

Whirly Twirly
Round and round
Down he scampers
to the ground.

Curly furly
What a tail
Tall as a feather
Broad as a sail

Where's his supper?
In the shell.
Snappity Crackity
Out it fell.
